Richmond Symphony’s “Summer at CenterStage” Recital Series Returns with Eight Concerts Featuring ‘Debussy and the French Romantics’

RICHMOND, Va. (May 11, 2015) – The Richmond Symphony (RSO) is happy to announce its Summer at CenterStage series of recitals for summer 2015, in association with the University of Richmond Department of Music, VCU | School of the Arts | Department of Music, and Richmond CenterStage. The series is made up of eight casual, one-hour evening concerts this year featuring the music of Claude Debussy and works influenced to varying degrees by French Romanticism. Performances take place in Richmond CenterStage’s Libby S. Gottwald Playhouse on Thursdays, July 9 – August 27, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.

The series was created as a way to showcase talented professional musicians associated with the Richmond Symphony, the University of Richmond, VCU and other institutions, all spotlighting a single instrument with piano. Tickets are only $20 for adults and include a voucher to enjoy a drink during the performance. The bar remains open after the performance so that audience and musicians have a chance to socialize together. Last season, tickets were in very high demand – many concerts sold out prior to the day of the performance.

Full Series and Summer Sampler subscriptions are available. Student prices are available. Complete schedule below. For more information, visit richmondsymphony.com or call 1-804-788-1212.

Subscriptions and single tickets go on sale Thursday, May 14, 2015
