“WVSO and Dr. Suess Are a Perfect Match!”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra's presenation of the stories of Dr. Seuss in musical form was WONDERFUL! I attended the event with my 10-year old daughter. We enjoyed the pre-concert activities for children and absolutely LOVED the music, which was enhanced by the vocal contributions of three guest performers. I whole-heartedly recommend this experience to families with children of all ages. I loved seeing toddlers swaying, dancing and conducting to the sounds of the orchestra. It was a priceless experience.

The WVSO is a wonderful orchestra under Maestro Grant Cooper. The recent Symphony Idol contest showcased the talent from around the state and the orchestras diversity.

“I no longer miss the National Symphony”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

Grant Cooper, Conductor, is a gem and has a wonderful sense of humor and personality. The Preludes before a concert are a wonderful learning experience and make the evening more personal. The music, the hall, the range of selections, the whole experience is worth my two hour drive from Lewisburg.

“Children's Concerts”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

The symphony gives Children's Concerts at the Clay Center. It is a great venue and Maestro Cooper does many of his own arrangements of children's favorites.
