    Southern West Virginia's only orchestra calls Mingo Central Comprehensive High School home. Led by veteran educator Laura Bobbera, the orchestra program at Mingo Central began when the state-of-the-art high school was opened in August 2011. In less than three years, students have become such proficient musicians that a string quartet was assembled and gave paid performances this past summer.
