Symphony's Come and Play

Registration is now underway for Come and Play, an annual event in which some 300 community musicians perform alongside members of the Richmond Symphony.

Come and Play will be staged on Nov. 20 at the Verizon Wireless Arena
of Virginia Commonwealth University’s Siegel Center, Broad and Harrison streets.

Chia-Hsuan Lin,
the symphony’s associate conductor, will lead a rehearsal from 2:30 to 5 p.m., with the concert beginning at 6 p.m. Admission to the concert is free.

Repertory includes classical and pops selections, to be announced later.

Positions for community musicians are filled on a first-come, first-seated basis, with a limited number of openings in each instrumental section. Once sections are filled, applicants may join a waiting list. The registration fee is $6.

Come and Play, now in its 10th year, is presented in support of music education in Richmond area schools.
