Bluemont Concert Series starts Aug 6

The Bluemont Concert Series returns to the Town of Ashland for its 2017 season of outdoor evening concerts featuring a variety of family-focused evening performances. The concerts this summer will be held once again on the steps of Randolph-Macon’s Mary Branch Residence Hall (204 Henry Street). The season kicks off with Circa Blue on Sunday, August 6th at 7:00 p.m.

With a $5 admission per person, $4 for Bluemont Friends and seniors, and $2 for kids under 12, this is one of the best deals around. Proceeds go to support Bluemont’s Artists-In-Education Program in area schools. Concertgoers are invited to bring a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on, and a picnic to enjoy before the show. As at all Bluemont concerts, no pets, alcohol or smoking are allowed. In the event of bad weather, the concerts will be held indoors at the Randolph-Macon College Blackwell Auditorium. Everyone is welcome at these family oriented concerts. Come join us!

The popular Bluemont Summer concert series is made possible by successful public/private partnerships, including the Town of Ashland, the Hanover Arts and Activities Center, Randolph-Macon College, the Virginia Commission for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, Wells Fargo Advisors, Loudoun Mutual Insurance Company, The Gerald and Paula McNichols Family Foundation, Middleburg Bank, Dominion Foundation, Target, and Walmart.

Bluemont Cultural Programs and Summer Concert Series have truly become part of the fabric of Ashland. Bluemont is currently seeking out local businesses, friends and neighbors to become Bluemont members who will help assure the organization’s future in Hanover County and beyond. Every contribution helps.
