Please give a warm welcome to Anthony Blake Clark who will lead as Interim Chorus Director for the 22-23 Season!

“I was thrilled to be asked to serve in the role of Chorus Director this season for the Richmond Symphony Chorus!  I am grateful to be joining in the work of sharing the joy of music across this community.  I have a tremendous admiration for Maestra Peleggi’s musical vision for the Richmond Symphony and am excited to partner with her, the orchestra, and the chorus to achieve the ambitious musical goals of the organization.  I look forward to bringing my passion for the great choral-orchestral masterworks to each rehearsal and performance in Richmond this season!” Anthony Blake Clark

Formed in 1971, the Richmond Symphony Chorus is a group of over 150 talented volunteers who bring orchestral masterpieces to life!  From singing at the Opening Ceremonies of the UCI Road World Championships to performing at the Kennedy Center, the Chorus is a shining cultural ambassador of Central Virginia.

Each season, through the Chorus Campaign, Chorus members also make vital contributions to the Symphony’s annual fund, helping to enhance the Symphony’s artistic excellence, to unite our communities through the power of music, and to ensure that our region’s youth continue to benefit from exceptional educational concerts and hands-on programs. If you are a Chorus member, and you would like to contribute to the annual Chorus Campaign, please visit the Richmond Symphony’s donation page.
