Investing in Our Historic Campus

Rocky Ridge Music’s 19-acre mountain facility includes dozens of venerable structures—from humble practice rooms to the historic Hewes-Kirkwood Inn–that are continually in need of maintenance and restoration. At the same time, we are pursuing an ambitious program of upgrades intended to meet current and future needs while preserving our rustic roots. This includes both new structures—such as a performance hall, a recording studio, and additional student housing—and infrastructure improvements such as water and waste treatment systems.

These investments in the future of Rocky Ridge depend on the generosity of our community, and provide opportunities for our most committed supporters to leave a lasting mark on the campus. Major donations for capital improvements can be acknowledged in a range of ways, from donor recognition plaques to named structures. To learn more about our plans and how you can be involved, please reach out to us using the form below.
