Student and Performing Groups:
Enhance your Virginia trip by including the Virginia Arts Festival. We have student opportunities galore;
Pre- and Post-Performance Discussions with Artists
These lively discussions are offered one hour before or one hour following the classical series concerts. Led by Virginia Arts Festival staff, these events offer a wonderful opportunity to learn about the music and composers you will be hearing in the evening's concert. It is also a chance to meet with renowned artists and get special access and insights to the performance. Event locations vary throughout spring.
Give your students a once in a life time opportunity to have one-on-one instructions with virtuoso artists. In conjunction with Performing Arts Consultants these master classes are presented by University and Professional musicians at local community venues so whether your group is an orchestra, a drill team, or chorus – we will “partner” your group with world class performers and musical educators, giving your students access to these master artists’ gifts, knowledge, and experience.
PERFORM! Opportunities for your student ensembles to perform as part of the Festival
Sign up for on-stage or in-lobby performance opportunities for student ensembles prior to select 2013 Virginia Arts Festival events. Your students will perform for a public audience. Chairs and music stands, or choral risers, will be provided; all you have to do is choose the date that fits with in your school calendar, offered complimentary with the purchase of event tickets.
