Third piano to be announced
An unforgettable evening of genius—Mozart and Schub. The New York Times called André-Michel Schub “pianistically flawless…a formidable pianist with a fierce integrity.” Hear this world-renowned pianist perform three Mozart concerti with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra: a “triple” concerto for three pianos, a double concerto for two pianos, and Mozart’s final piano concerto—truly a performance not to be missed.

Piano Concerto No.27 in Bb major, K.595
A Special Celebration
For 21 years, the Virginia Arts Festival has been a destination for chamber music lovers, thanks to the Festival’s Director of Chamber Music, André-Michel Schub. The Festival is fortunate to have had his guidance and musical gifts; winner of the three most prestigious competitions for classical piano (the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, the Naumberg International Piano Competition, and the Avery Fisher Recital Award), he is among the most admired pianists in the world.
Since 1997, André has called upon his many friends and colleagues in the music world and his own deep knowledge of music to craft programs for us that are unmatched in quality and beauty. So it is with deep gratitude and sadness that we announce that André will be retiring as our Connie and Marc Jacobson Chamber Music Series Director in 2018.
We are dedicating our 22nd chamber music season to André, and are thrilled to present him in multiple concerts with performers of unmatched artistry. André has chosen to devote his final season to the works of Mozart, and this concert is the crowning glory of the season.
