Virginia Arts Festival presents the VAF Chamber Players, Adam Turner, Conductor

Thursday, April 22, 2021

If you’ve been missing live classical music, be of good cheer! Three of the most beloved pieces in the repertoire will be featured in this spring concert on the Virginia Arts Festival Bank Street Stage. Villa-Lobos’ lyrical Bachianas Brasileiras No.5 joins the human voice with the instrument most often compared to the voice, the cello—eight cellos, in fact, providing a dramatic underscoring for the sensuous soprano tones. Dvorák’s classic Serenade for Wind Instruments showcases the rich sounds of the oboe, clarinet, and bassoon; and Gounod’s Petite symphonie bewitches the listener. Virginia Opera Artistic Director Adam Turner conducts this concert that features members of VAF Chamber Players, and a soprano from the Virginia Opera’s Emerging Artist Program. A spring night…gorgeous music…and the chance to rejoin with friends to hear the music you love…what could be better?
