What’s on the program these days? We knew you’d ask!
BMC Open Mic – Show Us What You Can Do!
We’ve launched BMC Open Mic, open to all musicians, for all genres, ages, and abilities.
Join the fun — until musicians and music lovers can gather again in person safely, the BMC open mic events allow performers to record a video of themselves playing music and send it in. Submissions are accepted anytime, and will be compiled into virtual “open mic” sessions shared on the BMC Facebook page.
Participants can play original songs, covers, or concertos, or use a music application like Acapella. Note: All lyrics and performances must be family-friendly. BMC Open Mic is open-ended — that is, you can send a video anytime, and we’ll let you know when we post your submission.
To participate, upload videos (no longer than 10 minutes) to WeTransfer or Dropbox. Then email the link to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those submitting a video will be notified when their performance will be featured.
We’re getting back to making music!
Our semester has started up. 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! Returning students: if your lessons have not yet been scheduled, please give us a call. 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!
