Wheeling Symphony names Bryan Braunlich executive director

Posted on: February 22, 2021

“Changes are coming to the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra,” writes Aaron Tyler in Friday’s (2/19) WTRF-TV (Wheeling, WV). “Bryan Braunlich was named the new Executive Director of the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra. His first responsibility in this new role will be to continue finding ways to adapt to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Braunlich previously held the marketing director and general manager positions. That’s where he produced the WSO On-The-Go program which brought the symphony to more neighborhoods in the area. ‘Building on that community is one of the things that I look forward to doing as executive director,’ said Brunlich. ‘Just really making the Wheeling Symphony a place where people can come and feel comforted, and feel alive with our incredible musicians and led by our music director John Devlin.’ … Braunlich said he wants the symphony to be a place of pride for everyone in the community.” Braunlich succeeds Bruce Wheeler, who served as executive director from 2010 to 2020; since March 2020, WSO board member Betsy Delk had been serving as interim executive director.
