I saw this a few days ago. They are going to be in Huntington at the Keith Albee on April 10. I'm going to try to make it to this if at all possible. Huntington attorney David Tyson,co-president of the Keith-Albee Foundation, and Penny Watkins, director of the Marshall Artists Series, were the ones who went to D.C. to make the presentation on WV's behalf to have the symphony come here. The best thing about the performances though is "The performance and related activities will not cost the state or any local agencies a dime, Tyson said. All proceeds from the events remain to support local arts organizations. The concert in Huntington will serve as a fundraiser for the Marshall Artists Series, he said."

Always thought Marshall had the edge on culture..Bailey...this proves it. Nice feather in your 'alls cap..

and thanks for the link, CT...

of course we will go...I see they will be doing a gig at the CAC here in Motown...

We used to sit on the grassy banks of the Potomac near the Lincoln Memorial and catch their evening concerts long ago...

It's great for arts throughout the state, and the
fact that there is no cost involved makes it
fantastic.

In Morgantown next year, we will have direct
access to concerts from the National Symphony,
the Pittsburgh Symphony, the Wheeling Symphony,
and the University Symphony. In addition, the
(Charleston) West Virginia Symphony is supposed
to appear right down the road in Fairmont. It
will be a great symphonic year. I'm planning
to buy series tickets for the Canady Concert
Series for the Pittsburgh Symphony.
