Under the direction of Erin Freeman, the Richmond Symphony Chorus enjoys a nearly 50-year history of bringing choral-orchestral masterpieces to life as part of the Richmond Symphony.
Our members donate their time to the cause of keeping choral music alive and thriving. From singing the National Anthem at the opening session of the General Assembly to performing at the Kennedy Center, the chorus is one of the shining cultural ambassadors of Central Virginia.
In recent seasons, the Richmond Symphony Chorus performed the world premiere of and recorded Children of Adam by Mason Bates, sang under the baton of world renowned conductor Marin Alsop, and sent representatives to sing in Paris, France and at Carnegie Hall with our director, Erin Freeman, conducting.
