All ages


The Richmond Symphony performs, teaches, and champions music to inspire and unite our communities. Founded in 1957, the Richmond Symphony is the largest performing arts organization in Central Virginia. The organization includes an orchestra of more than 70 professional musicians, the 150-voice Richmond Symphony Chorus, and 150 students in the Richmond Symphony Youth Orchestra Programs. Each season, more than 250,000 members of the community enjoy concerts, radio broadcasts, and educational outreach programs. The Richmond Symphony is partially funded by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.


Programs are designed to suit the needs of diverse audiences and include favorites from both the Symphony’s classical and pops repertoires. For many presenters, a concert by the 41-member Richmond Symphony Chamber Orchestra is an attractive option to the full symphony. The smaller orchestra size is based on the traditional classical-sized orchestras of Haydn through Brahms, allows for greater flexibility in venues, and has a lower fee than the full orchestra.

During the 2021-22 season, all eight of our Masterworks concerts will be made available for viewing at home. Viewing links will be sent the Wednesday after the in-person performance and will remain active until June 30, 2022. In-person ticket holders will automatically receive the viewing links for free.

Educational Programs

The Richmond Symphony School of Music (RSSoM) includes the Youth Orchestra Program (YOP), which continues to be the premier orchestral training program of Central Virginia since its founding in 1962. Students in grades 3 to 12 have opportunities to participate in four ensembles that provide beginning to advanced musical training. In addition, RSSoM offers digital courses to adult learners, ranging from the history of music to theory and connoisseurship. The Symphony’s Musical Ambassadors Program (MAP) engages students and educators by visiting schools and presenting shows with educational objectives. During these interactive in-school programs, students have the opportunity to learn about musical instruments and develop listening skills from the professional musicians of the Richmond Symphony. The RSSoM Digital Library (RDL) curates supplemental video lessons, which are available for schools, music teachers, community partners, and home-school parents. For more information regarding fees for the RDL or any other questions about RSSoM, please contact Marcey Leonard, RSSoM Program Manager and Community Partnerships Manager, at
