My first time in life in the presence of RSO players without Emma Gray nearby. Violin concerto written by a human from Richmond, Mason Bates, and performed by a violinist

After six years exposure to the Virginia climate this Kleeman sign suffered structural failure. A physical remnant of the 2007 Council election.
