Richmond Symphony

The Richmond Symphony and Maymont are collaborating to present a Big Tent community festival on Saturday, September 12, 3-7:30 pm, on the spacious and picturesque Carriage House Lawn at Maymont. The event, African American Voices, will highlight inspirational music of Black composers and poignant living history portrayals of African American staff at Maymont, 1893-1925. Proceeds from the Big Tent festival support music and art in Richmond Public School's 5th District. The beauty of the outdoor parkland at Maymont combined with amazing live music and art make this a must-see experience.
