The Richmond Symphony is performing Richard Strauss’s “Ein Heldenleben” (A Hero’s Life) this Thursday and Friday nights. Come hear two musicians from the orchestra talk about why this incredible piece of music is going to knock your socks off, make you a little teary-eyed, and leave you wanting more.
Ellen Cockerham Riccio (violin) and Matt Gold (double bass) will be talking about why they love “Ein Heldenleben” and playing musical examples on their respective instruments. Sub Rosa Bakery will be serving up their delicious pastries, coffee, and wine.
This will not be a lecture presented by experts; it will be a fairly chill geek out session with musicians who love what they do. Come hang!
A Hero’s Happy Hour
September 13 @ 5PM
