Charlottesville Symphony: British Riches

112 Old Cabell Hall, Charlottesville, VA 22904

ABOUT

The Charlottesville Symphony at the University of Virginia continues its 45th season with concerts on Saturday, February 15, 8:00pm, at Old Cabell Hall on the Grounds of the University of Virginia and Sunday, February 16, 3:30pm, at Charlottesville High School’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Performing Arts Center.

Benjamin Rous leads the orchestra in Butterworth's A Shropshire Lad; Britten's Nocturne; Williams' Elegy for String Orchestra; Vaughan Williams On Wenlock Edge; and Arnold's Tam o’Shanter Overture, Op. 51.

For those who want to “Know the Score,” pre-concert lectures are presented 45 minutes prior to each Saturday night concert at nearby Minor Hall. Free of charge, these popular lectures by UVA McIntire Department of Music Associate Professor Richard Will offer a lively and informative behind-the-scenes look at classical music. In-depth program notes are posted on the orchestra’s website, www.cvillesymphony.org two weeks prior to each Masterworks concert.

Free parking is available in the UVA Central Grounds Parking Garage, located on Emmet Street South, on Saturday nights and at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Performing Arts Center on Sunday afternoon. The Charlottesville Free Trolley stops at McCormick Road near the UVA Amphitheater, in close proximity to Old Cabell Hall. Both venues are wheelchair accessible.

Single tickets are $10-$45 for adults and $10 for students. UVA students may request one complimentary ticket in advance. Single tickets may be purchased at the University of Virginia Arts Box Office, (434) 924-3376, 12:00-5:00pm, Monday through Friday, in the lobby of the Drama Building at 109 Culbreth Road, or online at www.artsboxoffice.virginia.edu.
