...where words fail, music speaks
— Hans Christian Andersen

Welcome to the Virginia Federation of Music Clubs.  In 1920, just 32 years after the National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC) was founded, representatives from the Virginia State Teachers Association and numerous State Music Clubs came together and took the initial steps in becoming a State organization under the NFMC.  Since that historic gathering, the Virginia Federation of Music Clubs (VFMC) has become a “Star State” within the NFMC through its continued success in achieving the goals and objectives of the National organization. 

The VFMC has brought musical opportunities for musicians and music lovers, young and old, to communities throughout the state of Virginia.  Our state consistently ranks at the top in festival participation and performance, junior composer awards, junior club activities, and in awards presented to our members by the NFMC.  In addition, many of our members have served the NFMC as committee chairs, division leaders, elected and appointed officers, and board members. 

Since its inception, the VFMC has remained committed to its original purpose:  to develop high musical standards through individual and organizational activities that promote advancement of music and the arts, to aid and encourage musical education within our communities, and to promote American music and musicians. 

To those of you already a part of this wonderful organization, I thank you for your service.  To those of you considering membership, I encourage you to get involved through your local music club and contact us about participation at the state level.  It is gratifying to see the impact of musical opportunities within our state and to be part of the effort to expand these opportunities within our local communities.
