Reformation Festival
Virginia Symphony

We mark the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation by presenting one of Felix Mendelssohn’s grandest symphonies, one written “to celebrate the Church Revolution,” together with the piece that inspired it – Bach’s Cantata No. 80. We will hear two wonderful keyboard concerti from Bach’s hand, performed by the renowned international star and best-selling pianist Simone Dinnerstein to her first performances ever in Hampton Roads.
