2015 - 2016 SERIES

Saturday, March 19, 2016 – 7:30 p.m.
Georgia Guitar Quartet
The quartet’s thrilling technique will transport you to that indescribable place of wonder and ecstasy produced by music. A Spoleto Festival reviewer wrote: "a dazzling display of technical prowess, versatile programming, and audience rapport.” www.georgiaguitarquartet.com
That's the first half of the concert. The second half:    

Revien Trio
"Three members of the Georgia Guitar Quartet have a side project called Revien.  Two guitars and cello. And they play…they play whatever they want to play.  Bach, Debussy, Duke Ellington, Led Zeppelin, flamenco, bluegrass…" Fred Child, NPR


Saturday, April 9, 2016 – 7:30 p.m.
The all-acoustic quartet represents the diverse cultural background of its members -- Russia, USA and England – which influences its stylistic diversity and unique performances. The group’s performances utilize a breathtaking range of styles – from classical to Beatles; from Gypsy Jazz to Klezmer, and a few surprises in between.www.liveonstage.biz/Valinor-Quartet 


Saturday, May 14, 2016 – 7:30 p.m.
Main Street Brass Quintet
The quintet was formed in 1986, inspired by a musical camaraderie, a passion for brass quintet literature and performance, and a goal to present interesting and entertaining music to its audiences. “The group is as much at home with a Bach fugue as it is playing the blues of Fats Waller…” ~ The Morning Call 



“Math with Music” Educator

Yvonne Caruthers
Over two school days, Ms. Caruthers will present her math lessons at four schools on the Northern Neck. Teachers can choose from:“ Music and Fractions” ~ “Music and Graphs” ~ “Music and Ratios”. Our students loved her in 2013 – welcome back Yvonne!

Supporting and funding music education for the region's youth has been a part of the RCA mission from its inception.

Dating from 1986, RCA has hired performers who are dedicated to educating students and student outreach
programs have been made available in area schools. With the introduction of the Donor of Note giving program,
additional gifts have made it possible to expand the RCA Outreach program.

The RCA board is grateful to our donors for their generosity this season, and so are our principals and teachers.
Here is one of the thank you notes we received for grants of instrument purchase and repair to local schools:

Dear Folks,

As principal of Montross Middle School in Westmoreland County, I am so thankful to your association for your generous gifts over the past three years. Rob Wright, our band director, is tickled pink with the needed supplies/equipment provided for his classes by you. As all of us are handling personal and business financial hardships, your dedicated association of music lovers continues year after year to promote and support music in our schools. For that we are truly thankful.

March 2015
Mike and Audience

On Monday, March 23rd, pianist Michael Chertock gave the first student concert we have offered to elementary school children.  Mihael is the artistic director for the “Peanut Butter and Jam Sessions” in Cincinnati, that offers programs for very young children.  We wondered how he was going to manage 430 children from Pre-K to 2nd grade, but we needn’t have worried – they loved him -- 240 from Northumberland Elementary and 190 from Cople Elementary in Hague.  We thank Dr. Travis Burns and the staff at Northumberland High School for their generous hospitality to such large group on a Monday morning.”


November 2014

The world-renowned chamber trio "Intersection" gave a
workshop to a large audience of middle school students.
“Chamber with a Twist” is their motto, expressing their ability
to make new music with old instruments.

“Intersection” artists pose with Montross Middle School band students and Kelly Wright, Band Director.
