"Roaring Twenties"

The York River Symphony Orchestra returns at 2 pm on Sunday October 17, 2021, with a free outdoor concert beside its namesake river, at the Watermen's Museum, 309 Water St., Yorktown, VA, 23690.

We invite you to join us for music of the Roaring Twenties, featuring selections by Gershwin, Romberg, Victor Herbert and more. A special treat will be Bruch's beautiful Kol Nidrei with solo cellist Erin Hines. The complete program can be found on the Seasons page.

There are benches in front of the stage, but listeners often bring their own lawn chairs. In case of rain, the concert will move to a nearby tent, which also has cover for listeners.

Free admission. Donations welcome

Due to the collapse in April of the roof of Templin Hall, TNCC, Hampton, we are unable to return to the auditorium which has been our home venue since 2008. Our concert venues and dates for the remainder of the season have not yet been confirmed. We will update them here as they become available. There will be no Young Artists Concerto Competition in November 2021.
