About Us

Our Beginnings

Eighty years ago, a group of individuals from the two Virginias saw a need
to make quality music and arts entertainment available to the people of our region.
Blue Mountain Performing Arts was chartered as a member of the Community Concert Association of America in 1935.

Our Goal

At Blue Mountain Performing Arts, we seek to encourage live public performances of music, the teaching of music, and foster an appreciation of music history.
We bring a wide variety of quality arts programming to the community at affordable prices.

We appreciate our donors and members who make each season possible. Ticket sales cover only about
36% of each year’s expenses. We have created the Gift of Music Fund to bridge the gap between annual sales, grants, and actual costs.


The Gift of Music

2014-15_CoverArt_300x300pxWithout your annual support, BMPA could not bring music to the mountains of the two Virginias! Blue Mountain Performing Arts   is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. This means we serve community interests, and all donations to BMPA (above and beyond ticket purchases) are tax deductible.  Consider making a one-time gift to The Gift of Music. We Thank you!

For membership questions, or how to contribute to the BMPA family, call Mary Sue Anderson at 304.324.3234.    Membership cards are typically mailed prior to the first concert.


Don’t Forget

BMPA Season Ticket Members may attend all concerts held by the Beckley Concert Association (BCA) at no additional cost!

Members may also attend all performing arts series concerts at Bluefield College.

Blue Mountain Performing Arts enjoys a reciprocating agreement with the BCA. Detailed information of the BCA concert season will be included with your tickets.
