Pictures at an Exhibition

Date: Monday, October 2, 2023. 7:00pm

Venue: First Unitarian Universalist Church

1000 Blanton Ave., Richmond VA

Dueling quintets – one of strings and one of woodwinds – take on the music of Dvořák, Jessie Montgomery, and Spanish composer Óscar Navarro. These artists will then join forces to perform Mussorgsky’s famous “Pictures at an Exhibition,” which comes to life in a vibrant arrangement for 10 players.

French Dynasty

Date: Sunday, October 29, 2023. 4:00pm

Venue: Holy Comforter Episcopal Church

4819 Monument Ave., Richmond VA

Germany had the Bach family. But France had the Couperins, one of the most prolific musical families in history. Carsten Schmidt brings his golden harpsichord to CMSCVA for an intimate afternoon of fabulous Baroque music by Louis, François and Armand-Louis Couperin, the musical kings of France.

Fifth Season

Date: Monday, December 18, 2023, 7:00pm

Venue: Holy Comforter Episcopal Church

4819 Monument Ave., Richmond VA

The “Red Priest” Antonio Vivaldi is famous for his “Four Seasons” concertos. This concert goes beyond the four seasons to explore the beauty and spectacular virtuosity of Vivaldi’s other concertos, plus the world premiere of a piece commissioned for Baroque strings from American composer Kenyon Duncan.


Date: Sunday, March 3, 2024, 4:00pm

Venue: St. Mary’s Episcopal Church

12291 River Rd, Richmond, VA 23238

The magical qualities of light formed the inspiration for this program for strings, winds, and harp. Haydn’s famous “Sunrise” quartet and Ravel’s impressionist “Introduction and Allegro” pair with Gilad Cohen’s “Firefly Elegy” – a musical portrait of the life of a lightning bug – and a premiere by Richmond’s own Zachary Wadsworth.


Date: Sunday, April 21, 2024, 4:00pm

Venue: Second Presbyterian Church

North 5th Street, Richmond, VA

Experience 500 years of music from the British Isles in one time traveling concert, from a Purcell fantasy to the epic piano quintet by Edward Elgar, to a work by Hannah Kendall inspired by the art of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
