Due to ongoing and expanding closures related to COVID-19 (coronavirus), and especially in light of the Governor’s declaration of a state of emergency, the Richmond Symphony has cancelled the Hopkins-Eggleston Discovery concerts scheduled for Friday, March 13 in order to help protect the health, well-being, and safety of our patrons, musicians, and those in the community we serve. There will not be a make-up date for this performance.
This is a rapidly changing situation, and we will be regularly updating future concert information on an ongoing basis. Please continue to check our website and social media for updates.
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. Both Discovery programs presented in the 2020/21 Season will be exploring the elements of music and improving 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.
- Tickets are $6 (general admission)
- One free chaperone ticket with 10 paid student tickets
- Two age-appropriate Discovery Concert formats in 2020-21 Season
- Tickets are $4 for Title 1 school
“It is a thoroughly enjoyable program that met the needs of all my students especially those with
profound disabilities. That there is an educational component integrated into planning makes it easy to
justify educationally.” –Discovery teacher
