Proceeds from the evening will help benefit Virginia’s Blue Ridge Music Festival—Classical Music in the Mountains, taking place May 30 to June 9. The festival will feature an academy of pre-professional instrumentalists studying and performing with highly skilled professional mentors — chamber groups and full symphony orchestra performances and open rehearsals – all offering a rich musical experience in a wide variety of venues throughout Floyd County.
