Mountain Music Exhibit at RR Smith Center Museum for History & Art was a GREAT Success
Staunton, VA  

“Music & Miniatures of Note In The Valley” is a whimsical pairing of the region’s musical stories with miniature scenes from the Valley’s past. The Shenandoah Music Trail is directed by Don DePoy and Martha Hills (aka Me & Martha) and miniature history dioramas created by Gary Whistleman. 

The exhibit will feature a collection of instruments, music artifacts and showcasing active musicians currently playing in Augusta County. The dioramas capture events of the Valley and past events.
