All is Fein! for March 14 in Dodd Auditorium

We have just concluded the University of Mary Washington Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2013-14 concert season, our 43rd year of providing outstanding orchestral music to Central and Northern Virginia! The UMW Philharmonic Orchestra became nationally recognized in 2012 with the airing of their PBS Christmas show – “A Fiddler’s Holiday” with the Jay Ungar and Molly Mason Family Band. The UMW Philharmonic’s Celebrity Series, beginning its 12th year this next season, brings world-class musicians to Fredericksburg each year, including Marvin Hamlisch, Keith Lockhart, Judy Collins, Sir James Galway, and this past season, Itzhak Perlman. The UMW Philharmonic concerts are held in Dodd Auditorium in George Washington Hall on the campus.  Watch this site as we begin planning and announcing our new exciting 2014-15 concert season.
