Repertoire will include music from Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, Clarice Assad’s Impressions Suite for Chamber Orchestra, and Mozart’s Gran Partita. Also scheduled are Stacy Garrop’s Lo Yisa Goy, featuring WSO Principal Viola Jennifer Gerhard as soloist; and senior members of the Wheeling Symphony Youth Orchestra performing in a side-by-side performance. Safety protocols will be in place at the concerts. John Devlin is music director of the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra; Bryan Braunlich is executive director.
