Dedicated to the study and performance of the string literature, Ritorno a Musica provides a friendly, supportive and professional environment for members to improve and broaden their musical skills. The ensemble presents free concerts to the public through area libraries, local houses of worship and senior centers in Northern Virginia and is based at Hope Lutheran Church in Annandale.
Members are adults of various musical experience and proficiency. The group provides an opportunity for players to return to the music of their youth; accomplished musicians to seek an opportunity to perform on a second instrument; composers to hear their works performed; musicians to work their way back from an injury and much more.
The group features repertoire from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Contemporary eras. A sample of previous seasons’ programs may be viewed here.
Ritorno a Musica was founded in 2007 as the Annandale Strings.
