What’s New at the BMC?
In Stile Moderno Returns Sept. 21
In Stile Moderno returns to Brattleboro with their new program, Curious and Modern Inventions: Novelties, Oddities, and the Birth of the Baroque, Friday, Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m. Following up on their acclaimed performance in January, this group of young early music specialists will showcase their energetic and modern take on seventeenth-century music. The concert will be the first of three in the ensemble’s 2018–2019 season, with further performances in February and May 2019 in Brattleboro and Cambridge, MA.
On Friday, Sept. 21, at 7:30 p.m., St. Mary’s in the Mountains will offer its annual musical dessert as a conclusion to Vermont’s annual Wine & Harvest Festival’s “Wine & Soup Stroll.” After enjoying Wilmington’s foods, wines, and shops during the early evening hours, visitors and neighbors are invited to the historic main hall at St. Mary’s in Wilmington, for “Autumnal Melodies at the Red Door,” a concert of classical and jazz works performed by members of the Brattleboro Music Center, and friends.
Admission to the concert is by free-will donation, with all proceeds benefiting the BMC. Click here for more information.

Don’t Forget to Register for Fall Lessons and Classes!
Learn how you can make music part of your life. We welcome students of all ages and abilities. Today, with over 400 students, 30 dedicated and talented faculty members, and music instruction in 15 instruments and voice, the BMC Music School continues to be at the heart of music in our community. We invite you to learn more about our lessons, classes and ensembles, including our student orchestras. People of all ages and abilities pursue their musical interests at the BMC.
We believe music should be accessible to all who seek it and toward that goal the BMC awards more than $25,000 annually in financial aid and offers lessons for those with disabilities.
