Following Beijing, Austin, London & Geneva the prestigious 2020 Menuhin Competition will be held in Richmond, Virginia next May. In April 2018 a group of Maestro! music lovers came to Geneva for the final weekend of the Competiton and thoroughly enjoyed the experience attending master classes, visiting a luthier and experience the outstanding musicianship of the Junior and Senior Finalists and the closing Gala Concert.

In colaboration with the Competition we are planning a five night visit to Richmond incorporating the Junior and Senior Finals and the Closing Gala Concert whilst getting to know the historic city Forbes Magazine consider one of "The Ten Coolest Cities to visit" and MSN hailed as "One of the most walkable cities in America". We will also visit historic Williamsburg and the first permanent English settlement at Jamestown, Thomas Jefferson's boyhood home at Tuckahoe Plantation and his magnificent estate at Monticello. We also plan to include a visit to the beautiful Shenandoah National Park.
We fly from the UK to Washington DC and spend four nights in the nation's capital at perhaps the most pleasant time of year to experience the city. As well as seeing the many monuments of this great city we will visit several of the Smithsonian Museums including the magnificent National Museum of African American History and Culture which opened in 2016 and was designed by British architect Sir David Adjaye OBE. During our stay we will attend a performance of George Gershwin’s quintessential American operatic masterpiece Porgy & Bess with the Washington National Opera at The Kennedy Center.
