Welcome to Virginia’s Blue Ridge Music Festival, centered in beautiful Floyd County.
Our 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.
