Capitol Music Hall in Wheeling

The historic Capitol Music Hall is the home of legendary Jamboree USA, which has been broadcasting live over WWVA Radio since 1933. Fans from all over the eastern seaboard have tuned in to the live weekly radio show to hear country music artists perform on the Music Hall's world-famous stage. The second oldest country music program (next to the Grand Old Opry), the Wheeling Jamboree endures as one of America's oldest live radio broadcasts. The theatre is also home to the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra and various other musical, dance and theatre groups.
