The Virginia Symphony Orchestra inspires, educates, and connects audiences of all ages.
Archives of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra at the Old Dominion University Libraries:
The Virginia Symphony is at the center of the Hampton Roads arts community, and in many ways serves as the cultural cornerstone for the region. Each year, the orchestra presents a series of Classics, Pops and Family concerts in Norfolk, Newport News, Williamsburg and Virginia Beach. In addition, our educational and outreach programs touch the lives of more than 100,000 students and adults per season through concerts, lectures and presentations, in-school-residences, master classes, open rehearsals, student performances, collaborations with other organizations and an array of community engagement programs.
