VWU Welcomes Artists in Residence

Two local organizations are serving as Artists in Residence in the Susan S. Goode Fine and Performing Arts Center this fall: Tidewater Classical Guitar and the Virginia Chorale with Artistic Director Charles J. Woodward.

Tidewater Classical Guitar (TCG) is a non-profit arts organization with an all-volunteer board that cultivates awareness and appreciation of classical guitar by presenting world-class concerts and advancing guitar education. TCG presents concert series which feature many of the world's best-known and most outstanding guitarists. 

The Virginia Chorale is the premier professional vocal ensemble in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Founded 38 years ago, the ensemble has grown from a community-based early music chorus to today’s dynamic group of professional singers.

This semester, each group is hosting a series of concerts at Virginia Wesleyan, providing free tickets for VWU faculty, staff, and students, with ticketed performances also open to the general public. Both groups represent artistic excellence and dedication to the role of the arts in a liberal arts education.
