“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We bought tickets online and no one told us that this "symphony" moves around with their concerts. We simply missed it, because we didn't know the right address, because it was impossible to find it.

I have had season tickets for the past few years and the Virginia Symphony never disappoints. The musical selections are interesting and beautifully performed.

“Music to my ears”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

The Va Symphony is amazing. I have heard them on several occassions and the music is superb. Different programs throughout the year, but I love the Christmas production the best with all the old fashioned Christmas music. They did a Valvid series one year that was just wonderful.

I have seen many good orchestras and I rate the Virginia Symphony as one of the best. The strings at this concert were especially riveting.

“Always enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

The Virginia symphony is very good and has a wide variety of concerts throughout the season. We especially enjoy the performances at Ferguson Center on the CNU campus. A relatively small and convenient venue.
