Music At The Summit first began in 2014 and was the idea of Executive Director Beth Steele.  Thinking of the difficulty of finding a place for a motivated musician to play with like-minded people, she conceived of a festival that would be free of distractions and provide a musical experience many adults had not had in years.

The chance to play high-level music, under the direction of professional band musicians, masterclasses and clinics tailored to the concert program and the instrument were top priorities,

As the years have passed, the music has gotten better, the ensemble has gotten stronger and the camaraderie has gotten deaper.
