Season Opening Concerts

September 23 & 25

The Symphony's 2016-17 season opens with music that will transport you to far-off places, including Rimsky-Korsakov’s dazzling Scheherazade. Don't miss one of two chances to see Music Director Kate Tamarkin conducting the orchestra this season: after this program she won't be back on the podium until her Farewell Concerts in April.

Scheherazade on Video

Watch Concertmaster Daniel Sender discuss and play a bit of Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, which anchors the Charlottesville Symphony's Season Opening concerts on September 23 and 25.

A Little Night Music

Friday, October 14
