The Virginia Symphony Orchestra returns to Yorktown Saturday, August 30
The Virginia Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Benjamin Rous, returns to Yorktown at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 30, 2014 for its 18th annual outdoor concert. This year’s concert will be held at Riverwalk Landing on Water Street in historic Yorktown. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early with lawn chairs and picnic baskets.
A just-for-fun blue ribbon judging for the most creative picnic set-up will be awarded prior to the concert. The award-winning Fifes and Drums of York Town will perform a pre-concert show at 6 p.m.
The symphony concert is funded by community contributors from organizations, businesses and individuals along with sponsors, York County, York County Arts Commission and the Virginia Commission for the Arts, whose financial support makes it possible. The volunteer Celebrate Yorktown Committee annually raises $24,000 to present this free-to-the-public evening of music for the enjoyment of the community.
