Q--Where can I find directions? A--Directions can be found on the seating chart page.
Q--Where do I park? A--Parking is limited and gets more difficult closer to concert time. We suggest you arrive early for a good parking place.
Q--When do the doors open? A--Doors to the school open at 1:30 p.m. for tickets sales and pick up.
Doors to the auditorium open at 2:30 p.m. Concert starts promptly at 3:00 p.m.
Q--What should I wear? A--A symphony is not a formal event! Most people wear casual business attire. Since this venue is a school, the WVSO-P has no control over the temperature, so we suggest you bring a coat or jacket that you can remove.
Q--What about wheelchair accessibility? A--The school is wheelchair accessable.
Q--Are my children old enough? A--If your children are able to sit quietly for an hour at a time, we welcome them. Each person who has purchased a ticket to the concert is entitled to hear the concert without disturbance.
Q--Why are the WVSO'S concerts always held at the Blennerhassett school? A--The Blennerhassett school is the only venue in the area able to accomodate a full symphony orchestra.
Q--May I bring a camera, video recorder or other audio/video device? A--Please leave them at home. All recording devices and cameras are prohibited at WVSO concerts. Out of courtesy to other concert patrons, please turn off ALL electronic devices.
Q--What about weather cancellations?
A--In more than 25 years, the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra has never cancelled a Parkersburg concert. The decision to cancel a concert is not made locally in Parkersburg. Cancellations are made by the management and administration of the Symphony in Charleston, WV.
