About
At the Garth Newel Music Center in Hot Springs, VA, music is the key that unlocks a world of experience. From classical to jazz and more, inspired music-making is just the beginning. Shared gourmet meals, the exquisite Bath County setting. Perhaps you are planning to attend a concert and spend the night, or you are creating a special weekend (or weekday) getaway for two.

My wife treated me to a world premiere performance from a winning composer from Ukraine that was presented by the in-house piano quintet in late July as part of my birthday celebration. We had never been to this location and felt very welcomed and surprised that such a gem was located so very close to Hot Springs where we were staying. The music was exceptional, and the surprise dinner was delightful and a lovely surprise that I never expected. Our table companions were a delight to eat with and it is too bad we live in the Tidewater and cannot make more trips to the Garth Newel Music Center for it is truly a gem in the hills. As a musical family, we were both pleased. Keep up the good work.

This is the best kept secret in the world of music. A number of years ago my wife and I were traveling in Tuscany. We stopped at a fairly famous all hand made china/pottery factory. Upon meeting the owner he asked where we were from, we responded, a place you've never heard off , Roanoke, Va. His response was, yes I have, I flew into there last year to go to Garth Newel to hear my niece play. She is a musical child protege here in Italy -- that says it all.

I had won a contest thru Recreation News publication for a two night stay, concert and dinner here at the Garth Newel Music Center. This was our first trip to Bath County and the Music Center, and what a great stay it has been. The accommodations are Bed and Breakfast style with great views of the mountains. The music by the Resident Artist's was outstanding with the Garth Newel Piano Quartet. The food was by Resident Chef Josh Elliott was five star.
If you are bored with the same old vacation, check this place out.

Chamber music and a gourmet dinner in the countryside, far from any major metropolitan area. What a wonderful surprise! The music was fabulous, followed by a gourmet 4 course meal. What more could one ask for?

The Garth Newel Music Center is located in a re-purposed old barn, on the spot of a former farm. It is situated with an easy view of the nearby mountains and would make for quite a lovely setting for people who are fond of nature and mountains. It is also known for its food, though I can't say anything in that regard because I did not partake of it. Regarding the actual music, it was of very high quality, with good acoustical quality and no flaws.

The price tag, also, is a fair bit lower than most other professional music performances, and, considering the high quality of the music, it is a good value for the price.

At the end of the day, it's not much different than other famous concert halls, being unique only in regards to its architecture and scenery, but it still has very good music, and for anyone who enjoys music, I would certainly recommend a visit.

This was our second year attending a music festival and it was a blast. Our hope is to visit more frequently during the course of the year and check out other events. The staff has been amazing and always very pleasant to deal with. They've been very organized and extremely helpful, both in person and on the phone. I also appreciate the diversity of the scheduled events throughout the year. Something for just about everyone!

Bath County has a population of 4,700 in a remote section of Virginia. Hardly the place you can imagine that would so enthusiastically support a world class music center. But there it is, in a beautiful setting amidst the Alleghenies. We attended three concerts in August, including one by the resident quartet, and two by the emerging artists Fellows. These are a group of eleven young artists who stay at the center for a month to hone their skills (all have at least Masters Degrees) and perform a concert at the end of their stay. They were magnificent! At the end of each concert, patrons have the option of a first rate dinner prepared by the resident chef. The food was superb. Audiences are not huge (250-300 capacity). You are able to interact with the musicians, both before and after the concerts. The enthusiasm of the staff is remarkable. A unique and wonderful experience we hope to repeat in the near future.

We have come here over the years when at the Homestead. This is a real treat. $25 per ticket to hear WORLD CLASS music. This latest visit was a piano concert. Pieces for 4 and 8 hands. The auditorium, as it were, is a post and beam barn. But don't let that fool you. They have a concert grand Steinway. Every bit as enjoyable as Tanglewood, and you are sitting 40 feet away from the musicians.
