Richmond Symphony to serve as artist-in-residence at VCU School of Business

Posted on: August 22, 2018

The Richmond Symphony has been announced as artist-in-residence for the 2018-19 academic year at the business school of Virginia Commonwealth University, a public research university in downtown Richmond. The orchestra is the first music organization to participate in the VCU School of Business’s artist-in-residence program, now in its third year. Visual artist Noah Scalin and photographer Alyssa Salomon held previous artist residencies at the school. During the Richmond Symphony’s residency, orchestra staff will present guest lectures on creativity and innovation, perform a holiday pop-up concert in Snead Hall, host a team-building orchestral immersion experience for faculty and staff, and host other special events. “The artist-in-residence program has been a catalyst to inspire creative thinking and new approaches to problem-solving among our students, faculty and staff,” said Ed Grier, dean of the School of Business. “As a national leader in orchestra innovation and a cultural icon in Central Virginia, the Richmond Symphony will be a tremendous partner as we continue to find new ways to unlock our creative potential as individuals and as an organization.”
