The Virginia Symphony is extraordinary. I saw them perform the music of Styx with guest Dennis DeYoung. The evening was exceptional.

From classical to pops to children's concerts, this orchestra is outstanding. The three primary venues give slightly different experiences, but the music is consistently excellent and nicely blended from traditional classical to contemporary, occasionally featuring a debut piece.

First - JoAn Falleta. Need I say more about her?
Second - very proficient and professional members of the symphony - always a joy to listen to.
Have enjoyed the chorus from the audience perspective but have also been privileged to sing in the Virginia Symphony chorus in the past.
