Blennerhassett School is the only venue in the area with accommodations to support a full symphony orchestra.
May I bring a camera, video recorder or other audio/video device?
All recording devices and cameras are prohibited at WVSO concerts. Out of courtesy to other concert patrons, we also ask that you please turn off ALL electronic devices while you are attending the concert.
Are concerts cancelled due to weather?
In more than 31 years, the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra has never cancelled a Parkersburg concert. The decision to cancel a concert is not made locally in Parkersburg. Cancellations are made by the management and administration of the Symphony in Charleston, WV.
