Virginia Symphony Orchestra

The Virginia Symphony Orchestra has enriched the communities of Hampton Roads for 90 years, offering more than 140 classical, pops, family, educational, and outreach concerts each season, including orchestral support of the Virginia Opera and the Virginia Arts Festival. The 42-week season runs from September through June, and under Grammy Award-Winning Music Director JoAnn Falletta’s leadership, the orchestra has risen to new artistic heights. In August 2000, the Virginia Symphony was accepted into the International Conference of Symphony and Opera Musicians, officially entering the “major league” of symphony orchestras. VSO concerts are performed throughout Hampton Roads, and the Commonwealth. Tickets are available by phone at 757-892-6366 or online.

Bay Youth Orchestras of Virginia

Bay Youth Orchestras of Virginia is Hampton Roads' premier youth orchestra, with four ensembles comprised of over 250 young musicians from the area. Visit their Facebook page: Facebook or at their website.

Instrument Care

When was the last time you had your instrument professionally adjusted?

We recommend an adjustment, bow rehair or new set of strings about four weeks before an audition or recital; the professional adjustment can vastly improve your potential outcome. It is especially important if you are hoping for a super recital or if your goal is one of the top chairs in your section.

FYI—don't schedule an adjustment right before the event; the changes in your instrument will be too distracting. Strings take time to stretch and to stabilize. Your instrument also needs time to settle into that soundpost adjustment fully. We want you at your best; make an appointment for your professional adjustment today!
