The Va Symphony is amazing. I have heard them on several occassions and the music is superb. Different programs throughout the year, but I love the Christmas production the best with all the old fashioned Christmas music. They did a Valvid series one year that was just wonderful.

I have seen many good orchestras and I rate the Virginia Symphony as one of the best. The strings at this concert were especially riveting.

The Virginia symphony is very good and has a wide variety of concerts throughout the season. We especially enjoy the performances at Ferguson Center on the CNU campus. A relatively small and convenient venue.

I used to go all the time. My daughter even worked for them in sales. There is nothing to say but perfection at its finist. I love Symphony music and I love what they do with the instruments. It comes alive. And they can make music that anyone age can enjoy.

Incredible. Joanne Falatta is a godsend to this group, and to this area. She is unlike any other conductor I've ever seen — warm (she hugs every soloist), talented, and a great speaker.
