Posted on: July 2, 2015

“The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra is relocating its offices from the Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences to its own facility on the west side of Charleston,” reads an unsigned article in Wednesday’s (7/1) Herald-Dispatch (Huntington, WV). “ ‘By placing our offices on the west side, we position ourselves to engage new audiences in and out of the traditional concert hall,’ said WVSO President Joe Tackett…. The Symphony will continue performing its pops and symphonic programming at its Clay Center home. ‘We hope to continue our growing relationship with the Clay Center while building a new direct relationship with our current patrons and new connections into our community,’ Tackett said. By Aug. 1, the organization expects to be fully relocated and operational at 110 Wyoming St. The West Virginia Youth Symphony, which uses space donated by the WVSO, will also relocate to the new location…. ‘We will miss seeing our friends every day, but we look forward to many years of playing in the Maier Foundation Performance Hall while rebuilding fiscal stability for the WVSO,’ said Tackett. The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra presents classical, pops, family and chamber-music concerts annually throughout the Mountain State.”
