The Richmond Symphony’s Come and Play concert will be staged on Nov. 4 in the Wade Arena of Virginia Commonwealth University’s Siegel Center, Broad and Harrison streets.
In this annual event, now in its 12th year, members of the symphony play alongside musicians from the community. In recent years, more than 700 musicians have performed together, forming the largest orchestra in Virginia.
Chia-Hsuan Lin, the symphony’s associate conductor, will lead the ensemble in works such as Elgar’s “Pomp and Circumstance” March No. 4, “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from Grieg’s music for “Peer Gynt” and Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever.”
A rehearsal will run from 2:30 to 5 p.m, followed by the concert at 6 p.m. Both are open to the public free.
Come and Play supports music education in Richmond area schools.
Oct. 29 is the deadline to register. Spaces are limited; the flute section is already full.
