General Merriment

March Mindfulness 2019 Series Announced!


This March 2019, Classical Revolution RVA is proud to present a full month of activities and performances centered around the theme of mindfulness -

Music teaches us to live fully in this moment, and create as much beauty as we can with the time available to us. This path can be challenging but leads to both a fuller sense of self, and to interconnectedness with the world.

Treat your inner music-lover to a metaphysical feast of new experiences!

Mar. 6 - Meditation + Solo Bach

Mar. 10 - Classical Incarnations

Mar. 13 - Meditation + Solo Bach

Mar. 20 - Meditation + Solo Bach

Mar. 27 - Meditation + Solo Bach

Mar. 28 - “This Mortal Frame” - World Premiere Performance


Tickets available for Trey Pollard's "Antiphone" Release!

Tuesday, November 13th Tickets Available Here

“[Antiphone] promises to provide the clearest line of sight yet into one of this city's most brilliant musical minds.” - The Auricular

Classical Revolution RVA is proud to partner with Spacebomb Records and RVA music visionary Trey Pollard.

Worlds Collide as two beloved Spacebomb artists present the music of their inner selves.

Both Trey Pollard and Matthew E. White possess a sensitive and carefully developed musical voice, though they have chosen to express it through different genres.

Indie songsmith Matthew E. White will perform an intimate solo set with vocals and piano, later joined by a string quintet comprised of the musicians of Classical Revolution RVA.

The evening will continue with new compositions from Pollard's new album "Antiphone," performed live for the very first time by string quintet.

Pollard's Preludes and Fugues for string quintet create musical dreamscapes both comforting and challenging - a series of parallel harmonic planes, constellations of notes unburdened by the tension of standard chordal and melodic structures.

Never straying into the brashness of avant-garde, this is music for listening - made right here in RVA.


Meet Bernie!!



Bernie is a real piano who needs love from CRRVA musicians at the Hof!

Meet Bernie! He is a 2002 Bernhard Steiner upright piano. He traveled from Stafford VA and now lives in the Loft at the Hofheimer Building! This generous donation from Holt For Homes Realty will allow Classical Revolution RVA's musicians to perform on a well-maintained acoustic piano. Daniel Stipe gave Bernie a tune-up this afternoon, and he is ready to shine this Sunday at Incarnations!

We are so excited to give our wonderful pianists an upgrade for all future performances at the Hof. Long live the Revolution!
