On October 25 and 27, Erin conducted two different sets of education and community engagement concerts to rave reviews from teachers, students, families, and bloggers alike.
The Discovery concerts on October 25 were written, programmed, and delivered by Erin to coincide with the Virginia Standards of Learning in Music and Visual Arts. The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts’ education department (a partner in the performance) wrote:
I anticipated that the Discovery Concert would be excellent and enjoyable—but I did not anticipate that it would also be electrifying. I was truly blown away by the entire experience. The connections between art and music were well thought out and presented with great panache.
And, Richmond’s Cultureworks Blog wrote in a review with the great title of “Eating Children at the Symphony”:
"Bravo to Erin Freeman and the Richmond Symphony for energizing the educational and transformative powers of Dvorak et al."
