Welcome to Perelandra - An experience designed to help you appreciate the glory that surrounds us all!

Imagine … Emmy Award winner, National Champions, Guitar Superstar 2008, International Performing Artists … up close … and personal … imagine ...
An opportunity to see “World Class” performers in an intimate, up close and personal setting.  No clanking glasses, noisy chairs or inattentive audience members.  A collection of music lovers in a recording studio setting … very close to a stage in front of 9 picture windows 300 feet up a ridge with a stunning view of the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains gazing back.  Close your eyes … and hear … music like you've never heard.  You're “in the room.” 
If it wasn't for YOU.  This opportunity could not exist.  Thank you … for supporting music … in it's purest form … “up close and personal” … at Perelandra!

Perelandra is a private recording/performance studio conceived, constructed and owned by Jerry Read Smith in conjunction with Song of the Wood, Ltd. and located in the beautiful mountains of East Asheville, North Carolina!  Jerry hosts Concerts and Workshops to offer high quality music and instruction in an intimate, relaxed atmosphere where the guest's experience is both personal and vital.  The listening experience in this room is, most likely, unlike anything you have experienced before.  The connection between the artist and the audience is a truly exhilarating experience.  All performances are recorded "live."  Every Concert is preceded by a very informal Reception where the concert-goers get an opportunity to meet the performing artist ... and each other "one on one."  The Workshops give interested participants the chance to learn from these extraordinary talents ... and, hopefully, inspire their own musical journey. Come join in on the experience of ...Perelandra!    
Seating is limited and all presentations will be handled on a "first come, first serve" basis.   You can view the 2014 schedule below!

Most Concerts are on Saturday night and start at 7pm.  Every Concert is preceded by a complimentary Reception on the deck and/or in the house at 5:45 PM, during which time you can get to know the artist(s), enjoy a bit of refreshment (both hot and cold hors d'oeurves), and admire the mountain views!  Most of our performing Artists will offer Workshops on Saturday ... a truly special opportunity to learn from these extraordinary talents!

Here’s how it works:
We will email an invitation approximately a month prior to the concert date, at which time we will begin accepting reservations for that concert.  All reservations will be “first come, first served.”   Seating is limited to 50, and most concerts sell out, so don’t wait to reserve your seat!

Although you cannot reserve a seat prior to receiving the actual invitation, you can let us know if you are especially interested in a particular upcoming event, and we will add your name to an “early invitation list”, which will go out three days before the general invitation.  To do this, simply email Perelandra@songofthewood.com and ask to be placed on the “early invitation list” for the concert you want to attend.  Remember, this list is ONLY for that particular concert ...

We look to having you join us!
