Beckley Concert Association strikes up the band for a new season of concerts
Thank you Beckley Concert Association for inviting us to be a part of your 2021 Summer Social Season Kick-Off by partnering with us for a Business After Hours event. We appreciate the hospitality from all of your BCA member representatives. We enjoyed our evening networking with BCA folks inside and on the lawn of the historic Beckley Woman’s Club Clubhouse.
We know our community is looking forward to your upcoming 2021 concert season. We encourage everyone to check out the season concert line-up by visiting BCA on line at www.beckleyconcerts.org We encourage everyone also to secure their BCA Season Tickets so you won’t miss any of the concerts throughout the season.
Thank you also to The Corner Gas & Grill for serving up some delicious eats for everyone to enjoy during the evening.
And, Thank you to Jim Snyder for making our evening complete with some wonderful music for relaxing on the lawn and networking with friends.
BECKLEY CONCERT ASSOCIATION RAISES CURTAIN ON NEW SEASON WITH MEMBERSHIP MIXER & BUSINESS AFTER HOURS
The Beckley Concert Association’s new season of musical offerings serves up a tasty menu of something for everyone’s musical tastes. Concerts range from bluegrass to classics from piano masters to a harpist, from an acapella group to folk singers. It truly is a musical smorgasbord!
For the first time in the Beckley Concert Association’s (BCA) history, a season had to be canceled when Covid 19 struck the nation. Therefore, according to new Board President Scott Worley, the group is anxious to offer quality entertainment to music lovers in the local area. “For 82 years, this association has brought wonderful music to Beckley, and we are just so happy to be back. The BCA has been around for 82 years, but this is our 81st season.
Our concerts are for every age group, Worley said. “Bluegrass is multi- generational. We have three wonderful female country singers and a piano player who does the music of SEASON John and Billy Joel. And how many harpists play Sting’s music,” he asked.
All BCA programs take place at the Woodrow Wilson High School Auditorium, on Thursday evenings at 7:30, with the exception of the final concert of the season. That performance will occur at the Beckley Presbyterian Church.
The 2021 season kicks off with The Mike Mitchell Band on August 26. Mitchell, a former Beckley musician, currently living in Virginia, is a singer, songwriter and fiddle player, who captures audiences across the country with his distinctive bluegrass style. The concert is part of the Appalachian Festival in Beckley.
