Cancelled for 2020. Returning in 2021.

Come join us for our 48th Anniversary of Music in the Mountains!

The Virginia Suzuki Institute is a small institute nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The campus is beautiful and everything is within walking distance. We have a talent show, evening concerts, games on the lawn, and great activities for the whole family.

Having the Kontras String Quartet in residence for the chamber music program makes this a very appropriate institute for families with students at different ages and levels of playing. There is something for everyone.

Our unique program for Adults allows all ages and stages to enjoy a great week of music making.
