Classical Incarnations at the Hof

This season's fresh chamber jams! Free to attend.

Incarnations is the most chill way to get to know your city's classical music scene. That's because we literally chill at a cool bar and listen to each other perform.

There's something for everyone, with a new performance taking the stage every 5-15 minutes. Young guns, seasoned pros, and wizened legends make their rounds in a relaxed, come-as-you-are environment with great acoustics.

Classical Incarnations shows feature Bernie, a beautiful acoustic piano donated by Holt for Homes Realty and maintained by Daniel Stipe.

Bachtoberfest with Daniel Stipe

Witness the dazzling musicianship of one of our city's great pianists, Daniel Stipe.

Stipe performs the complete Johann Sebastian Bach Keyboard Partita in G Major, and serves up a second round of music by Bach's biggest fan, Johannes Brahms: Rhapsodies Op.79 1 and 2, Op. 78 Klavierstück.

Stipe performs on a beautiful bernhard steiner upright piano, which he keeps in excellent condition on behalf of Classical Revolution RVA and the Historic Hofheimer Building.

Eat, drink and be merry starting at 7:00pm, Music 7:30-830pm. FREE to Attend, $5 Suggested Donation.

This Mortal Frame: An Evening of Music by Steve Snowden

This Mortal Frame: An Evening of Music by Steve Snowden

FREE ADMISSION - Suggested Donation $10

Enter the musical world of renowned composer Steven Snowden with works for string quartet and the world premiere of “This Mortal Frame,” for cello and electronics!

The music of Steven Snowden has been described as “Beguiling… combining force with clarity” (San Francisco Classical Voice), “Wonderfully dynamic” (Interlude Hong Kong), “Rustic, red-blooded” (New Music Box), “Marvelously evocative”, (Cleveland Plain Dealer), and “The most wildly intriguing sight and sound I have experienced at a concert” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer)

‘This Mortal Frame’ for cello and electronics, was composed for distinguished RVA cellist Schuyler Slack. The music chronicles the journey of Henry “Box” Brown, the Richmond-area slave who had himself mailed to Philadelphia in 1849 in a wooden box to escape the bonds of slavery. 

“This Mortal Frame” is a musical odyssey that surrounds the listener with the wonders and dangers of “Box” Brown’s unique path to freedom. It celebrates the courage of a man willing to risk his life for something better and transcend the circumstance into which he was born.

The adventure continues with an all-star line-up of musicians:

Ellen Cockerham Riccio, Matt Richardson, and Lauren Nelson join Schuyler for performances of three works for string quartet including ‘Appalachian Polaroids,’ inspired by the photographs of Shelby Lee Adams. Maestro Steve himself will make an appearance performing on a surprise instrument!
