About

Jefferson Center is celebrating the arts renaissance in Virginia’s Blue Ridge and we are proud to be doing it with your support in Shaftman Performance Hall, our community’s theater, which is playing an integral role as a home to great performances. 
 
From world renowned artists to local organizations that are building the stars of tomorrow, Jefferson Center works diligently to ensure that this cultural asset stays online and appropriately supported for the important work happening inside.  What happens during and after performances in Shaftman Performance Hall has lasting and profound impacts not just for audiences but more importantly for young artists who benefit from experiencing great live art and mentoring from world class performers at Jefferson Center’s Music Lab. 
 
In eleven short years, Jefferson Center has produced, pushed, and prodded great live art into Southwest Virginia.  Amazing nights that rival what’s available anywhere in this country, nights that you share with your closest friends in an intimate venue. 
 
Thanks to all Jefferson Center ticket buyers and supporters, our model remains sustainable as we are given support consistent with our impact.  And we strive to do more every day.  If you feel like you can do more to support Jefferson Center, please consider a gift that you feel is significant.
