Several concerts in CMSCVA’s 19th season explore the passing of time. This free event combines poems and readings with the first half of Peter Tchaikovsky’s romantic suite of short pieces named “The Seasons.” Experience the calendar journey from January to June in words and the intimate, tuneful music of one of history’s most emotional musicians.
You can also stream the concert live from the Richmond Public Library at this page.
