West Virginia Symphony League of the West Virginis Symphony Orchestra

WVSL President's Message


Message from the President

Dear Members,            

Welcome to a new exciting year with the West Virginia Symphony League.  The 2015-2016 Year is a year to reach out! We plan to reach out to the community for new sources of support, for new members, and for new audiences this year. The West Virginia Symphony League supports the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra by fundraising projects, by stimulating community interest in the WVSO, by assisting the WVSO Board, and by promoting friendly relations within the WVSO family.  We support the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra through our gifts of time and talent.  By doing so, our members make commitments to enrich the lives of their families, communities and West Virginia with gifts of fine music.

The most important function of the League, beyond raising critically needed funds for the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, is making new friends and providing needed service to the many West Virginia Symphony Orchestra and West Virginia Symphony League projects.  Members not only support fundraising but also community outreach events. We would especially like to encourage new members to join the West Virginia Symphony League.

The League presents a variety of exciting fundraising projects each year.  This year’s events include our Gala, the annual Fashion Show, the very successful Teddy Bear Tea, and other events.  In community-oriented activities, WVSL members assist the WVSO with Young People’s Concerts, reaching thousands of children several times in a season.  We end our year with the greatly anticipated, family-oriented Symphony Sunday, held annually the first weekend in June on the campus of the University of Charleston.  This event starts Friday with an enthusiastic and creative party, sometimesincludes a Fun Run and other events, and progresses to Symphony Sunday, ending with the traditional free performance of the WVSO and fireworks.

Please join us as we work together to reach out to the community for new support, new members, and new audiences as we work together to bring wonderful music to our friends and the community!
