For our Virginia workshop, we return to the
beautiful campus of
Washington and Lee University in the small city
of Lexington, Virginia, nestled between the Blue
Ridge and Alleghany Mountains. The school was
founded in 1749 and has a rich history. The front
campus with its neoclassical colonnade is designated
a National Historic Landmark. The surrounding city
of Lexington has many interesting sites to explore
such as the Lee Chapel, the Stonewall Jackson
Museum, and the George C. Marshall museum at the
Virginia Military Institute.
We are pleased to again have use of the music rooms
and pianos in magnificent Wilson Hall. Built in 2006
to house the departments of Music and Art, it
includes a beautiful state-of-the-art Concert Hall.
Housing this year will be in single rooms, dormitory
style, in a beautifully-renovated residence hall
in the central part of the campus.
Some ensembles will meet in the comfortable lounge
areas or in Wilson Hall. The excellent meals
alone, served in the splendid University Commons,
are enough to entice many participants to return
year after year. All facilities are air-conditioned.
