Join JoAnn Falletta as she makes her final appearances on the podium at Regent University and Williamsburg as VSO Music Director. From JoAnn herself: “My years with our beloved Regent University audience has been the happiest time of my life. As my last concert in this series, I have picked a favorite composer – Richard Strauss – and one of the brilliant stars of the VSO- hornist Jacob Wilder – to say farewell to my wonderful friends.” It will be a special night of appreciation and celebration to remember!
Meet the artists and discover the orchestra experience from a new perspective during Behind the Notes, a pre-concert talked hosted by Music Director JoAnn Falletta. These casual presentations give you a special look at the music of the day as well as the music-makers themselves. They offer an informative way to learn about the music before your orchestra experience. Our hour before each Classics concert (6:30pm). Behind the Notes is FREE to ticket holders at all venues.
