The Arts & Music Scene Music & Theatre Experience engaging local performances and touring troupes this fall and winter at venues large and small. The Blackfriars Playhouse at the renowned American Shakespeare Center in Staunton — the world’s only replica of Shakespeare’s original indoor theater — and Four County Players in nearby Barboursville, a talented community theater, bring us exciting shows this season. On the Downtown Pedestrian Mall sits The Paramount Theater, which always offers an array of acts throughout the year. The Live Arts Theater just around the corner presents many unique shows, too, and music fans should be sure to check venues, such as John Paul Jones Arena on the University of Virginia’s campus and the Sprint Pavilion, also on the Downtown Mall, for must-see performances. For a smaller music venue, visit the Jefferson Theater or The Southern Music Hall & Cafe, both of which always have something exciting on the schedule. The classical music lover can find an impressive selection of performances in Charlottesville as well, put on by the Charlottesville Municipal Band, the Charlottesville Symphony, Victory Hall Opera and the Charlottesville Opera. For information on other fall and winter shows and series, check out our calendar at CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook.com.
