March at Rocky Ridge Music Center is typically a time of busy preparation and building excitement as we ramp up for our summer season of camps and concerts, but as our 78thsummer approaches, we face a challenge unlike any in our seven-decade history. As citizens, businesses, and non-profit organizations alike have drastically modified plans and daily routines to help control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, everyone is feeling the impact of these disruptions in profound ways. Along with restaurants, hotels, and airlines, arts and culture organizations are facing the devastating prospect of months of closure, with no income to support our staff members and artists.

Although we have made no changes to our summer programming at this point, anxiety and uncertainty surrounding the question of when the worst of the pandemic will be behind us is understandably upending the plans of many in our participant community. Like every small arts education organization, Rocky Ridge Music Center relies on both donations and tuition revenue to fund our operations. With the possibility of limited or postponed summer programming, we will need to rely more than ever on our community’s generosity to fill the gap and secure a future of music in the mountains. Our goal is to raise $50,000 by mid-April.
