Find Out What Richmond Performing Arts Venues Are Doing This Fall

As performing arts venues across the country struggle to stay afloat amidst the health crisis, find out what venues in the Richmond area are doing this fall.

Learn about the upcoming performances from the Richmond Symphony, Richmond Ballet, Virginia Opera, and more.

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.
