Wheeling Symphony - Opening Night Gala Celebration American Stories


The Capitol Theatre

WSO’s artistic mission will be fully embodied in our Opening Night Gala Celebration for the 2022-23 season. This special event and concert will boast seven living American creators: soloists Christylez Bacon and Yo-Yo Ma, and composers Caroline Shaw, Enrico Lopez-Yañez, John Williams, and Evan Meier. These artists and composers represent a variety of stories, ages, backgrounds, genders and perspectives— but they will come together on this night to celebrate “American Stories.”

In addition, we’re pleased to host our Opening Night Gala before the concert in the Capitol Theatre Ballroom, featuring a seated dinner by Kimberley Ashlee Catering, cocktail hour with butlered hors d’oeuvres, and an open bar. Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails will be served at 5:30 pm, with the plated dinner beginning at 6:15. Attire is cocktail optional. Following the concert, we will return to the Ballroom for the Opening Night After Party, featuring an open bar, small plates, and entertainment TBA.
