Student Matinees

Bring your students to Virginia Arts Festival’s special student matinees to share the thrill of live performance in a theater or concert hall, then incorporate the experience into class discussions that open your students’ minds to new ways of learning.

Student tickets are $10, chaperone tickets are $20, and we provide one complimentary chaperone ticket per every 10 student tickets purchased.

Special funding is available for schools with financial need.
