Performance Details

  • Date Saturday, April 23, 2022
  • Time 8:00 pm
  • Venue Dominion Energy Center
  • Conductor Daniel Myssyk
  • Trumpet Rex Richardson

Richmond’s own Rex Richardson salutes the smooth, seductive sound of Duke Ellington and those Billy Strayhorn standards: “Satin Doll,” “Take the ‘A’ Train,” and more. It won’t mean a thing if you’re not there to swing! The concert includes a new work composed by Trey Pollard of Richmond’s Spacebomb Records. “A standout soloist with the power, range, and flexibility to rival Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw…” declares Downbeat magazine of Rex Richardson’s trumpet virtuosity.
