New Tent Lets Richmond Symphony Take Its show on the Road

 The Richmond Symphony has purchased a 70-foot outdoor performance tent after successfully completing its $500,000 Big Tent Initiative and winning a $500,000 challenge grant from the Mary Morton Parsons Foundation. The new tent will be in place by mid-August, allowing the organization to bring its 70-piece orchestra and 150-member chorus outside the walls of the Carpenter Theatre, in order to cultivate a greater, more personal connection with its surrounding community.
