Who We Are

We are the musicians of the Richmond Symphony, a professional ensemble comprised of world-class musicians from across the country and around the globe.  We've studied at the best music schools in the country (Juilliard, Eastman, Curtis, etc.), and have survived a rigorous audition process to win a highly coveted position in the Richmond Symphony. Some of us have just moved to town, and others have been bringing live orchestral music to Richmond audiences for more than 30 years! Above all, we are dedicated to sharing excellent classical music with the city of Richmond.

The Symphony Musicians of Richmond and AFM local 123 partnered together to bring Benjamin Zander, a world renowned conductor and public speaker to Richmond for an exciting and interactive classical music experience designed for those who don't have classical music as a part of their lives.  "Classical FEVER" was a wonderful free event at St. Michael Catholic Church, and donations to benefit the United Way of Greater Richmond and Petersburg totaled nearly $3000!  We saw many new faces, and got people excited about music.  Many thanks to Ben for his gift of inspiration to us all!
