Do You Know about Outreach?

One of the wonderful things about Bluemont (and not just Bluemont in Ashland but Bluemont in all communities!) is the Outreach Program. Prior to each concert on the lawn, our performer or band for the evening spends time at a senior center or assisted living facility, playing for those in our community who otherwise would not be able to attend the concert.  Paige Christy, a Bluemont in Ashland volunteer since the beginning seven years ago, coordinates the outreach programs and loves doing it (not to mention she is fabulous at it!). Our performers spend about thirty minutes sharing their music and then interacting with the residents. We've heard that the residents enjoy the performances, even for weeks following! This week, Black Sheep will be performing at Omni Park Senior Center. Thanks Black Sheep!

Thanks to the Town of Ashland and our friend Bill Artiglia for our amazing new 2012 Bluemont in Ashland banner! Look for yourself on the lawn of the Hanover Arts and Activities Center when you come to our first concert of the summer this Sunday, August 5!

We're always so excited about Bluemont summers in Ashland and even more when it's so close to the first one. Here's a little preview of our first band, Black Sheep! Then come on down to the Hanover Arts and Activities Center and see them live under the stars!
