HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - An orchestra that uses a barge as its floating home plans a concert tour of West Virginia this summer.

The Herald-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1PRlTc0) reports the Pittsburgh-based American Wind Symphony Orchestra will perform in Huntington on June 18. The symphony also plans to give music lessons to Huntington-area students.

Other stops on the “Winds Over West Virginia” tour include Charleston, Logan, Parkersburg, Princeton, Ravenswood and St. Albans, along with Marietta and East Liverpool in Ohio.

Robert Austin Boudreau founded the orchestra in 1957. He’s also the captain of the group’s 195-foot musical barge Point Counterpoint II.
