About

Our ongoing focus is on music education, especially the support of local young people, and on broadening our region’s musical richness by making classical music and a blend of classical and Appalachian heritage styles affordable and available in our community – in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

Our Vision for Classical Music in the Mountains

  • Broaden our region’s musical richness by making classical music and a blend of classical/Appalachian heritage styles affordable and available in our community – in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
  • Provide a wide array of musical offerings – house concerts, chamber orchestra, and ensembles – with special emphasis on families and seniors.
  • Promote music education, especially the support of local young people, and appreciation for music.
  • Offer grants and scholarships to support promising area music programs and young musicians.
  • Develop stronger collaborations with area schools and arts organizations.
  • Provide opportunities for young musicians to study and perform with skilled professional mentors.
  • Strengthen the area’s economy.

History

We began our journey gathering in a small group in our homes. Milestones emerged as we formed a Board in March 2012. David Steward Wiley became our Artistic Director.
