Music & Arts at Providence participates in community partnerships with other performing organizations throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, including The Fairfax Symphony Orchestra and Virginia Opera. These partnerships help to expand the educational and community outreach of M&A while providing additional performance opportunities for the talented musicians of both organizations to interact with one another as performers and arts educators.
As part of these partnerships, M&A has presented events such as the Deep River: Marian Anderson’s Journey, the Feuer String Competition, and piano master classes.
During the 2016-2017 Season, Music & Arts Chorus joined the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra and Fairfax Choral Society for a stirring performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The performance was so well received that the three organizations will come together again in March 2018 for the Mozart Requiem and in May 2018 for the “A Night at the Opera,” FSO’s 60th Anniversary Gala Celebration concert.
