The Charlottesville Symphony is a unique blend of professional musicians – many of whom are also music faculty members at the University of Virginia – accomplished community members and talented university students from diverse academic fields. Together, they create high-energy learning and listening experiences worthy of a large metropolis. Exciting Masterworks, Holiday and Pops concerts regularly bring audiences to their feet. During the academic year performances are held at UVA’s Old Cabell Hall and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Performing Arts Center at Charlottesville High School.
Benjamin Rous was named Music Director of the Charlottesville Symphony in the spring of 2017, and simultaneously joined the University of Virginia faculty as Associate Professor of Music.
