enriching lives through music


What’s on the program these days? We knew you’d ask!

A New Month Brings New BMC Open Mic Performances
You can enjoy the latest (greatest!) Open Mic offerings simply by clicking this link. We’re proud to present these talented performers, and visit our YouTube channel for past performances. And what about YOU? Upload videos (no longer than 10 minutes) to WeTransfer or Dropbox. Then email the link to bmic@bmcvt.org.

It’s in the bag!
During the month of May, you can help the BMC when you shop at the Hannaford Supermarket on Putney Road in Brattleboro. Hannaford’s Cause Bag program makes it simple: purchase a ‘Good Karma’ Hannaford Helps bag, and the BMC gets a $1 donation.

BMC Launches an Artist-in-Residence Search
We’ve launched a search for an artist-in-residence. We’re looking for an emerging musical artist of color for a significant new project.  The selected artist will spend up to two years engaged with the Center, including an estimated two months each year on site in Brattleboro.

The goal of this residency program is to bridge the gap in experience and understanding between the people and community of Brattleboro and musical artists of color, and provide an opportunity for each to learn from and grow in awareness of and empathy for each other. Those interested in learning more about the residency program can learn more here!

Concert Choir’s Stay-at-Home Sing-Alongs Continue — and Enjoy the First Virtual Choral Performance!
The Brattleboro Concert Choir’s popular Stay-at-Home Sing-Along series continues. The group also is offering virtual performances of inspiring choral works – check out the first offering, featuring a work by Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, as the BCC series spotlights works by women composers. For more info and a detailed schedule of offerings, click on this link.


We’re making music!
We are offering a medley of in-person and online lessons.  Interested in starting lessons?  Please call  and we will work on getting you going!  Our in-person lessons will take place at the BMC in compliance with our safety protocols.  Prefer to be online? Many instructors can offer lessons online and these have proven to be a good alternative for students:

“It was gratifying how well my guitar lessons went on Zoom while the Music Center was closed due to the pandemic. I’m enthusiastic about starting up again this fall in person or via Zoom.  -JH”

Please be in touch. We are happy to answer questions and talk about options.  We look forward to “seeing” you soon!
