The Huntington Symphony Orchestra (HSO) announced five upcoming concerts on Wednesday. This is part of the HSO’s 52nd season in downtown Huntington.
The HSO can trace its roots back to the first orchestra organized in West Virginia in the 1930s as part of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), according to the HSO website. The group performed regularly for years before losing steam in the mid-1950s. The organization was brought back by Dr. Paul W. Whear in 1970.
The Fall/Winter 2022-23 season will begin on September 24 at the Foundry Theater inside Huntington City Hall with a “Symphonic Thriller!” featuring Christiana Bouey on violin.
On Friday, October 28, the HSO will present “A Haunted Halloween” as part of their Candlelight Concert Series at St. Joseph Catholic Church.
Huntingtonians can get into the holiday spirit with the “Home For The Holidays” concert at the Foundry Theater on December 19, where the HSO will present all your favorite seasonal hits.
Grab your significant other on February 10, 2023 as the Candlelight Concert Series returns to St. Joseph with the HSO’s presentation of “Greatest Love Songs.”
Finally, the HSO rounds out their winter season with “A River Runs Through It” featuring baritone Eric Brown on April 1, 2023 at the Foundry Theater.
All shows start at 7:30 pm. Tickets to all shows are currently on sale at HuntingtonSymphony.org.
