The Capitol Music Hall

The Capitol Music Hall is the home of Jamboree USA, the second-oldest live country music program in the nation (after the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville). Since 1933, Jamboree USA has featured the hottest and most popular country music stars, and the performances have been broadcast by radio to listeners all over the eastern part of the United States.

The Capitol Music Hall also features weekly live country music shows on Saturday nights, national Broadway productions, comedy shows, and other types of live entertainment. The Wheeling Symphony Orchestra also performs here.

Built in 1928, the Capitol Music Hall offers the elegance and intimate charm of the old-time theaters, while at the same time features modern, state-of-the-art facilities.
