Maestro Benjamin Zander is coming to Richmond! His TED talk about the transformative power of classical music has more than 6 million views. Ben has two infectious passions: classical music and helping us all realize our untapped love for it — and by extension, our untapped love for all new possibilities, new experiences, new connections.
I talked with Maestro Zander about his views on classical music and what we can expect from his upcoming performance with the Symphony Musicians of Richmond. He promises this will be more a musical experience than a concert!
The performance will take place at St. Michael Catholic Church in Glen Allen this coming Monday evening, April 28th at 7:00 p.m. The event is FREE, but registration is required. Any donations accepted at the event will benefit the United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg. Please note that families are encouraged to come, especially those with children 11 and up.
Yours in good music,
