enriching lives through music


Yes, our in-person programming is on, shall we say, pause?

But…we’ve got plenty to offer in the weeks to come. Rest assured, the BMC continues to be a community partner as we all work to stay safe and healthy.

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

BMC Presents May 30 Concert Featuring the Laredo-Robinson Duo
We’re pleased to collaborate with the Detroit Chamber Music Society CameraMusic Series to present a special concert by violinist/conductor Jaime Laredo and cellist Sharon Robinson Saturday evening, May 30.
The concert will start at 8 p.m. A pre-concert interview will air at 7:30 p.m. You can view the concert via our Facebook page, or at CameraMusic.
For over 40 years, the storybook romance of Bolivian-born violinist Jaime Laredo and American cellist Sharon Robinson has been expressed in every facet of their lives. Joyous and sophisticated music making, both separately and together, has earned them devoted fans world-wide. Locally,  Jaime and Sharon are rooted in Southern Vermont both as BMC Artistic Advisors and neighbors.

And what else is happening?…

On-line lessons! Yes, you can continue to practice and develop your skills, thanks to technology and our talented faculty. This is a great time to begin an instrument or to perhaps resume your practice, so sign up today!

We’ve added the next Music Appreciation Salon, the latest way to explore music from home!  With Moby Pearson as your guide, immerse yourself in a survey of music history, with bonus “asides” like the genius of choral conductor, Robert Shaw.  Follow each session as we post it!

Golden coverDid you miss Becky Tracy and Keith Murphy’s recent “all request” online concert?  You can still listen! Songs from Newfoundland, camp songs, dance tunes from all over, including originals, and some from their days with Jeremiah McLane as Nightingale.”  You can learn more about their music, and their recently released CD Golden, at Black Isle Music.

Here is a link to our Peter and the Wolf concert for area school children in March. This performance, part of the BMC Music in the Schools program, featured narrator James Gelter as well as an orchestra of fine players from the region, conducted by Zon Eastes.
