Comfort and Joy! The Beethoven 2020 Summer Series
The Richmond Symphony’s weekly summer concert series returns this year in association with the University of Richmond Department of Music and VCU | School of the Arts | Department of Music. The series is made up of six casual, one-hour concerts spotlighting a single instrument with piano.

Performances take place in the Libby S. Gottwald Playhouse, Dominion Energy Center of the Performing Arts at 6:30 pm on Thursdays from July 9 to August 13. This year we will be hosting limited, socially distanced audiences and simultaneously live streaming each concert.

Concerts will remain available to ticket holders for an additional 6 days after the live performance.

This year’s theme is Beethoven, in honor of his 250th birthday, and we thought it fitting to dedicate our entire series to him and his world.

This concert is in loving memory of Betty Allan, a founding member of the Richmond Symphony. Betty performed as a cellist with the Richmond Symphony for 44 years, before retiring in 2001. We are forever grateful for her contributions and support of the Richmond Symphony.
