Hopkins-Eggleston Discovery Concerts

DSCN0392We are pleased to announce the dates for our Hopkins-Eggleston Discovery Concerts for the 2023/24 Season!

Hopkins-Eggleston Discovery Concerts, held during the school day, engage young minds through exciting full-orchestra performances. These morning performances by the Richmond Symphony correlate with Virginia Standards of Learning.  Discovery programs explore specific elements of music and improve students’ listening skills.  Participating schools receive student listening guides, a teacher guide, and concert repertoire in advance of the performance. Concerts serve city, county, private and home-schooled students.


The Conductor’s Spellbook

The Conductor’s Spellbook tells the magical story of Tony Stradivarius. During a field trip to the symphony, young Tony finds a powerful book of spells and uses it to control the orchestra.

Nov. 1 & 2, 2023 – 9:45am and 11:30am


Peter and the Wolf:

Boys like Peter are not afraid of wolves! Prokofiev’s timeless tale of boy vs. wolf comes to life in Michael Boudewyn’s signature performance. This concert is a perfect introduction to music and the instruments of the orchestra.
