Mary Anne Rennolds Chamber Concerts

About the series

“To a valiant heart, nothing is impossible.”

-epitaph for Mary Anne Rennolds (1922-1989)

 

The Department of Music at Virginia Commonwealth University has presented the top chamber music performers in the world to Richmond audiences for more than thirty years. VCU Music’s series, originally founded as the Terrace Concerts, debuted in 1983 in partnership with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Today, the series is named in honor of Mary Anne Rennolds, one of Richmond’s greatest music patrons. A fund was established in her memory to present chamber music events in Richmond, independently of the Terrace Concerts. We cordially invite you to become a part of the premier chamber music series in Richmond. Please call 804-828-6776 for more information.
