Guest Artists

Each of our programs feature guest soloists . . . Vocal and Instrumental.  Through our performances, we give community and national artists a platform to showcase their talents to an appreciative audience while bringing recurring cultural arts enrichment to the Richmond area.   Featured guests include winning show choruses from the region and internationally renowned musicians and educators.   Our partnership with the musicians of the United Sates Army Band and the President's Own Marine Band is unprecedented.    We provide our patrons with an annual concert featuring the US Army Chorus, and include soloists from these groups at several concerts throughout each year.   Our collaboration with these esteemed musicians has resulted in spectacular custom arrangements commissioned especially for our shows.
