Wheeling Symphony Youth Orchestra Holds Annual Bluegrass BBQ Fundraiser at Oglebay

WHEELING — Wheeling Symphony Youth Orchestra Bluegrass BBQ will be held from 2:30-6:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29, at Hess Shelter, Oglebay Park. The event will feature music by local bands: Brother Randall & Friends, Crandall Creek, Out of the Blue and Cabin Fever String Band, and BBQ food by Charlie Schlegel from Ye Ole Alpha. The event is sponsored by Wheeling Hospital, Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, and Main Street Bank.

The Wheeling Symphony Youth Orchestra offers young musicians from the tri-state area a formal venue to train and perform together under the direction of Benjamin Podolski and Rayce Leib. Podolski conducts the WSYO Philharmonic, which is comprised of High School and College students. Leib conducts the WSYO Sinfonetta, which features area middle school students. In the fall and spring, both groups offer free concerts that are open to the public.

The Bluegrass BBQ helps raise money for the Wheeling Symphony Youth Orchestra to continue its tradition of providing a tuition free opportunity for its members and to enable them to perform free concerts to the public each year.

Tickets to WSYO Bluegrass BBQ can be purchased by phone at 304-232-6191, via email at boxoffice@wheelingsymphony.com, or in person at the box office.
