The Valentine Hosts New Concert Series – Music in the Garden

During the first three Thursdays in June, the Valentine will host three live music concerts in the historic garden. This new concert series will pair performances by individuals and ensembles to bring diverse audiences together in one venue.

Richmond Times-Dispatch Collection, The Valentine.

The intent of the project is to expose audiences not only to new art forms, but also to each other in a way that invites conversations and understanding. Music genres including gospel, classical, bluegrass, punk and more are all being considered for the lineup by the series curator Chris Bopst.


Thanks to the generous support of the Carpenter Foundation and CultureWorks, each concert is free and open to the public. Parking in area decks and on-street is available. Each event will feature a local food vendor and brewery.


Save the dates of June 2, 9 and 16 and join us for this exciting new music series. Visit for more information as musical acts, food vendors and breweries are announced.
