October 8, 2015 – Richmond, Virginia Join the Richmond Symphony and Music Director Steven Smith at Randolph-Macon College for the first Metro Collection concert of the 2015-16 Season. Hear selections from Bartók, Weber, and Mozart in a concert featuring principal clarinetist Jared Davis on Sunday, October 25 at 3pm.
Davis says that he is looking forward to performing at Randolph-Macon College. He especially enjoys the intimacy of Blackwell Auditorium and the emotional connection it creates with the audience. He is also eager to play Weber’s second clarinet concerto with his colleagues in the orchestra. It is a piece he first studied as a teenager, and Davis chose to perform it on this concert because he feels it is a fun and lighthearted piece for the audience, filled with dance and song.
A FREE pre-concert talk will be held from 2 – 2:30pm in the Dollar Tree Community Room on the second floor of Brock Commons.
Ticket prices are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, $10 for children, and $5 at the door for college students and faculty with ID.
The concert is sponsored by the Randolph-Macon Arts Council.
