“Great Shows!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

I'm probably biased because I love classical music, but I love to go to the symphony at each chance I get. The Virginia Symphony is a great treasue. They play all over Hampton Roads, VA at beautiful venues. In the summer, they play at the oceanfront!

“Major orchestra in a smaller city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

Virginia Symphony, led by Maestro JoAnn Falletta, is a cultural gem in a small southern city. New music, traditional favorites and more unusual classical pieces all combine to make for a wonderful evening of music. The orchestra members are true professionals who work hard at their craft and the sound they produce is exquisite.

The Virginia Symphony is extraordinary. I saw them perform the music of Styx with guest Dennis DeYoung. The evening was exceptional.

“A Tidewater Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

From classical to pops to children's concerts, this orchestra is outstanding. The three primary venues give slightly different experiences, but the music is consistently excellent and nicely blended from traditional classical to contemporary, occasionally featuring a debut piece.
