The West Virginia Brass Quintet (WVBQ) formed in June 2009 is one of the most exciting chamber ensembles in West Virginia.  This versatile group’s repertoire spans five centuries of music, from Renaissance and Baroque to Contemporary to Dixieland Jazz with an emphasis on traditional American music.  With members living more than one hundred and fifty miles apart, the WVBQ goes to great lengths to sustain their passion for music making. From their annual Holiday Residency at the famous Greenbrier Resort to Artist Series Concerts at the Tamarack Center in Beckley and Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg to myriad church services, weddings, and civic functions, the West Virginia Brass Quintet has performed extensively throughout the Mountain State and surrounding areas.

The Town of Oakland is busy planning the Little Yough Summer Music Festival (LYSMF) summer concert series, which takes place at the Mountain Fresh Pavilion in the heart of the Oakland Arts & Entertainment District. This year marks the 25th Anniversary for the concert series that was started in 1996 by Ken Perrin as a showcase of area and regional singers, songwriters, and talent.  

The family-friendly, free concerts are held at the Mountain Fresh Pavilion in the Oakland Town Parking Lot every Friday evening from July 8 to September 2, with the exception of Friday, August 5th, 2022. Food vendors will open at 6 p.m. and the performances begin at 7 p.m.
