WILLIAMSBURG — Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer recently leased a building to the Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra to move its office space into 4805 Courthouse St. in Williamsburg.

“We’ve been in this location for about 11 years — and of course, we’ve loved being near Colonial Williamsburg and all the action down here — but the space just doesn’t suit our needs anymore we just need a bit more room.” Carolyn Keurajian, Executive Director for Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra, explained in an interview.

“We have a new music director Michael Butterman who’s just joined our team, as well as some additional staff, and so we just need a little more room,” She continued. “It’s an office for various committee meetings, board meetings, receptions and that type of thing. But we’ll have plenty of room to spread out and potentially have our music library there as well.”

The symphony’s move into the Newtown Shops coincides with its 20-year anniversary celebration, and it looks forward to being able to support the Newtown community.

In addition to the new office, the Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra has a new, exciting event planned for 2022.

“We are doing a new concert this year called Cirque de la Symphonie, which is similar to a Cirque performance with acrobats and various things, but with a full symphony orchestra,” Keurajian said. “We’re really excited to be back to a full season of concerts, but we’re also doing a lot of educational programs.”
