with Richmond Symphony Music Director and Conductor Steven Smith.
Held on Wednesday, February 24, 2016, at 1708 Gallery, 319 W. Broad St., Richmond, Virginia, the program will begin with refreshments at 6 p.m. and run about 90 minutes.

Steven Smith will give a behind-the-scenes look at how orchestras function and provide background overview on the instruments, procedures, and concert traditions. Designed as informal, fun, and informative sessions including wine and cheese, Smith will begin the discussion, but will also encourage participants to ask questions, make comments, and join in the discussion.
Tickets are $30, and student tickets (with ID) are $15.
Tickets are available through the RSOL website at: www.RSOL.org
“Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Orchestras” is sponsored by the Symphony Young Professionals of the Richmond Symphony Orchestra League.
