Home for the Holidays at the Bridge Tavern!
Home for the Holidays! Our windows and individual wreaths celebrate what the holidays are all about - family, friends, and the places we love to visit when we come home for the holidays. The Bridge Tavern is proud to support Youth Services Systems, Inc. and their 10th Annual Wheeling Sleepout by participating in the window decorating contest.

Box office: Call 304-232-6191. Address: Oglebay Park. The final concert of the series is a “Global Celebration” and our own WSO musicians will take center stage. Our adventure begins in Argentina, with a rousing work by the king of tango, Astor Piazzolla. We will then head to Japan and hear a haunting concerto for solo alto flute and harp by the legendary Toru Takemitsu, featuring WSO principals Barbara O’Brien (flute) and Fran Duffy (harp). Now traversing west, we arrive in Russia, where we will experience the wrenching music of Dimitri Shostakovich in his String Quartet no. 8, arranged for string orchestra. Then, we turn our attention back to Europe and explore the work of a relatively unknown but brilliant French composer from the Classical period, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, in a concerto for solo violin played by WSO Concertmaster Rachel Stegeman.
