Westminster Canterbury Richmond is ready to Fall into the Arts!
Arts organizations around the world are getting creative about how to fill our cravings for live music and art when getting up close and personal isn’t advisable. Westminster Canterbury residents are soaking up new experiences!
Westminster Canterbury’s Sara Belle November Theater is known to local and touring performers as a beautiful performance space. During the pandemic, we are also building a reputation for having advanced and capable technology for streaming. For example, Westminster Canterbury is partnering with Richmond Performing Arts Alliance on their Legends Livestream series with three one-hour concerts airing live from our Sara Belle November Theater on YouTube and our in-house television station. These are available exclusively for not only our residents, but also for RPAA patrons. Other upcoming livestreams for residents will feature the Richmond Symphony, pianist Michelle Huang and Mike Davidson and the Latin Jazz Messengers.
What if watching on TV or your computer isn’t for you? We’re taking it outside! Our residents will safely enjoy socially distanced shows in our beautiful outdoor gardens featuring RVA Baroque, Virginia Opera, and a special Movies on the Ellipse showing of Apollo 13. For many performers, our outdoor concert series is the first time they have been able to play for a live audience since COVID-19 reached our region. We are feeding the hearts and souls of performing arts lovers and those for whom the arts is their livelihood during this season of uncertainty.
