Reach Out – Schubert and Li

  • Date: May 2, 2021
  • Time: 2:00pm and 4:00pm
  • Location: Richmond, VA
  • Venue: Art Works


Chamber music is the ultimate demonstration of cooperation and leadership, and this concert features one of the crown jewels of the classical music repertoire, Franz Schubert’s magnificent Octet for strings and winds. To put this music in a contemporary framework, we also present the world-premiere of a commission from composer Shuying Li, that depicts the transition from isolation to togetherness, from one player to eight.

To ensure the safety of audience members and performers, all live concerts with CMSCVA adhere to guidelines such as socially distanced seating, masks, paperless ticketing, and more.
