Music Director and Conductor Andre Raphel Smith
Shall we dance? The Wheeling Symphony is dancing with some musical stars, on a concert of dance-inspired music by Ravel and Berlioz tonight at 8 at the Wheeling Capitol Theater. The symphony will also play Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony No. 8, and pianist Benjamin Hochman will join them to play Schumann’s Piano Concerto.
