Trinity Episcopal hosting organ concert with WVSO
HUNTINGTON — The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra (WVSO), kicks off the City National Bank Casual Classics series with a Sunday afternoon concert at Trinity Episcopal Church in Huntington at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14.
Organist Bradley Welch joins the WVSO and music director Lawrence Loh for an afternoon full of music focused around the hauntingly beautiful instrument, the organ.
“The intimate setting of our Casual Classics concerts will put the spotlight on our musicians, and Beethoven’s 1st Symphony is the perfect kind of piece for this special concert setting,” said Loh. “I’m also excited to welcome Bradley Welch, a brilliant organist, who will be spectacular in the Poulenc Concerto!”
The City National Bank Casual Classics series is in its inaugural season and blossomed out of support for a chamber music-like series in conjunction with the symphony’s year-long schedule.
This came after a successful performance at First Presbyterian Church in Charleston last season.
Tickets are $20 general admission at wvsymphony.org or by calling 304-957-9876.
This concert is made possible by the generous support of City National Bank, Trinity Episcopal Church, Alan and Catherine Morrison, Mrs. Linda Turner, Skip and Pat Gebhart, Peyton and Anna Forbes, Level
One Fasteners and Huntington Internal Medicine Group.
