Who are we?
Some of the directors of the Virginia Classical Music Foundation are:

(L-R) Allen Hench, Alison Wiley, Eric Brandt and Steve Myers

What do we do?
We are an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation which encourages the broadcast and performance of classical music in Virginia. 

One of our current projects is to create a much-needed public radio station, based in Charlottesville to broadcast classical music and international news, and to promote local events.  Additionally, we aim to provide a broadcast platform to showcase the historic national heritage which resides in our beautiful countryside - at the important sites of America’s early history.  The proposed new service is intended to present excellent programs on a modest budget. We hope this will be the first radio station in a statewide public radio network.

Would you like to know more?
We would be delighted to provide you with more information, a list of our endorsements, proposed program grid, budgets and anything else you might like to know.  Just email us at steve (at) virginiaclassical.org.  Thanks!
