native Mark McVey will be performing with the West Virginia Symphony this Friday and Saturday in Charleston.
You can listen to my radio story about his upcoming concert here: “Huntington Native Returns to Perform with WV Symphony.”
McVey last sang with the WV Symphony two years ago as part
of gala concert. His performance of "Bring Him Home" from Les Mis was (of course) wonderful, and I was really taken with his dark, dramatic interpretation of "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera (so often I've heard people ignore the creepy undertones and sing it as a plain love song).
Before that concert, we spoke then
about his journey from singing in church choirs in Huntington
to starring on Broadway. That 2008 interview, which hasn’t been available online since we
moved to our new site, is now available right here:
