Fall 2013/Spring 2014 Concert Series:

Dear Music Lovers:

We began offering classical and jazz concerts in our inti­mate acoustic space in 2009. Since that time and in partnership with WDBJ7 Your Hometown News Leader, we have been able to attract more regional, national, and international talent. Having stellar musicians offer their artistry to the Floyd and New River Valley region­al audience is a hallmark of this effort.

Through audience demand, we have been able to grow this series and invite you to not just one or two concerts, but to a year-round series.

The subscription series offers discounts for those who purchase tickets ahead of time for all four concerts in the series. Or, you can “build your own series” by pre-purchasing your selection of 3 or 2 concerts in the series. In addition, if a last-minute touring artist or group makes an unexpected stop in our area, subscrip­tion holders will get first-notice and discounted access to surprise visiting talent.

Mark your calendars for the entire series so you don’t miss a single note.

We hope to see you there!
