Comprised of more than 70 professional musicians, the Richmond Symphony orchestra has put on stirring classical concerts since 1957, blending timeless classics with contemporary pieces for audiences of all aural preference. The Jefferson: In His Own Words performance will feature the masterwork of composer Judith Shatin, who's managed to string together an earful of crowd-moving tales through the inspiration of Thomas Jefferson's own writings, political passions, personal correspondences, and deep love for foosball. Narrated by former Governor of Virginia Gerald L. Baliles, the performance also includes works from Copland, Saint-Saëns, and Dvorák.

Reviews

The Richmond Times-Dispatch recently featured the Richmond Symphony. Judith Shatin, composer of Jefferson: In His Own Words," was also featured in UVA Today:

  • She also turned to the music of Jefferson's time for inspiration – listening to the music Jefferson lived with as well as investigating the music that was part of the slaves' lives. Shatin's goal was to create a portrait, not just of a statesman, but "a more nuanced and intimate portrait." – Jane Ford, UVA Today
