The weekly series is free and features a wide variety of jazz performances in the museum’s café.
Thursday evening jazz performances at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts will continue thanks to a local sponsor. Now known as the Dominion Jazz Café, the free weekly event will continue to showcase performances by musicians representing all facets of the jazz genre.
Working with the Richmond Jazz Society, VMFA began Jazz Café in 2010. Dominion’s support ensures that Jazz Café will continue to be free while maintaining the quality level of performances that visitors have come to enjoy.
“Dominion’s support allows the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to continue our jazz programming for the next three years,” Director Alex Nyerges said. “Museums have evolved to serve the community with not only world-class art, but with diverse social spaces as well. This support ensures that Richmonders will continue to have free, live music performances every week.”
Dominion’s support for the jazz series is being made through the Dominion Foundation, the company’s charitable arm. “The sponsorship—and our long patronage of the museum—reflects our commitment to investing in community vitality and cultural diversity,” said Dominion Chairman, President, and CEO Tom Farrell, who is also a VMFA trustee. Farrell also said that while he does not participate in funding decisions made by the Dominion Foundation, he believes that Jazz Café exemplifies VMFA’s dedication to providing exceptional experiences of art and culture that engage, captivate, and delight a diverse and growing audience of museum visitors.
Dominion Jazz Café takes place each Thursday evening from 6:00 – 9:00 PM.
