The Charlottesville Symphony family mourns the loss of Rachel Duncan who passed away on August 8th. Rachel joined the orchestra as Principal Trumpet in 2015 and was also the Lecturer in Trumpet at the University of Virginia. She was a gifted musician, a wonderful colleague and a cherished friend to many of us. A memorial service will be held at Old Cabell Hall on Sunday, September 2, at 3:00pm. It will be followed by a reception at the Municipal Arts Center. All who wish to share in this time of remembrance and celebration of Rachel’s life are welcome.
Fresh off their triumphant first season together, Music Director Benjamin Rous and the orchestra have planned a year of exhilarating, colorful and deeply moving programs, featuring a slate of awe-inspiring guest artists. From Mendelssohn's 'Italian' Symphony to Respighi's Pines of Rome, Sibelius's glorious Second Symphony to Tchaikovsky's epic Fifth, you won't want to miss a single note!
