WVSO offers ‘Percussive Surprise’ shows
CHARLESTON — The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra presents its second concert of the Elliot Foundation Symphonic Series at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, in Charleston and at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18, in Parkersburg.
Music director Lawrence Loh will lead the symphony through Beethoven’s “Coriolan Overture” and Prokofiev’s “Romeo & Juliet.”
The show will feature Lisa Pegher, a much sought-after percussion soloist, performing Richard Danielpour’s “The Wounded Healer.”
Pegher commissioned the percussion concerto from Danielpour in 2016, which features nine different percussion instruments: the Amplified Chimes, Tibetan Singing Bowls, the Glockenspiel and several others.
Tickets for the Clay Center concert start at $12 and are available at wvsymphony.org or by calling the Clay Center at 304-561-3570.
