Short Pump Symphonette
The Short Pump Symphonette is an amazing 20-piece string orchestra showcasing both youth and adult performers. Their full sound fills the space with notes from classical and popular music favorites. Created primarily to provide orchestral instruction in the Short Pump area, the group has evolved to performing all over Richmond and has become an area favorite.
