Note: Due to an increase in COVID cases, we have decided to cancel our January 29 event at Muscarelle Museum in Williamsburg.

The last year has been a challenging time for our community, but it’s also reaffirmed the importance and magic of live, in-person performances and connections. It’s been over a year and a half since we’ve had the pleasure of hosting an in-person WHRO Classical Open Mic; we are elated to announce that we are bringing these events back across Hampton Roads over the next year!

Upcoming Events
