Brevard Music Center Announces Cancellation of 2020 Summer Season

Brevard Music Center

BMC Supports Critical Efforts to Stem the Spread of COVID-19 

by Cancelling Summer Institute & Festival

April 4, 2020 (Brevard, NC)—After careful analysis of the continued global, regional, and local impact of the Coronavirus, the Trustees of the Brevard Music Center have unanimously voted to cancel its renowned Summer Music Festival, which had been scheduled for May 30 – August 22, 2020. The Brevard Music Center, one of the country’s premier training programs for young musicians, is also cancelling all educational programming during the summer of 2020.

BMC made the difficult decision to cancel its 2020 summer institute and festival in order to remain compliant with current health advisories, civil ordinances, and government guidelines to help stop the spread of COVID-19. “We have an ethical obligation to do our part to protect our Brevard community,” said Weinstein. “The very nature of BMC’s operational business model is based on bringing students from almost every state in the country and from around the world to our campus and our community to participate in a transformative summer of study and performance. We also employ hundreds of seasonal staff and interns, distinguished faculty members, and world-class guest artists for a summer festival that welcomes 40,000 attendees. Mass gatherings of all of these individuals, plus hundreds of BMCA volunteers, could advance the spread of the virus…and that is a risk that we simply cannot take.”

In the immediate days and following weeks ahead, the Brevard Music Center staff will proactively contact all 2020 ticket holders to offer a full refund on their purchase. BMC ticket holders will also be given the option to donate the full or partial value of their tickets to the Brevard Music Center as a charitable contribution. Ticket buyers may visit brevardmusic.org or call 828-862-2130 for further details.

Underhill Rose LIVE Online
Apr 9 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Keep Music Live Project Facebook

Image may contain: 2 people, people playing musical instruments and guitar

Eleanor Underhill and Molly Rose go solo in a two set concert from their homes in Asheville, North Carolina. Americana at its best.

HOW IT WORKS: RSVP https://www.eventbrite.com/e/underhill-rose-tickets-100634641923?fbclid=IwAR0-AlagHpExefICMa4WGZK5kqyl7LhdSieNk6ntM3U3wlR1J5OU6ganNLE by selecting REGISTER. You will receive an email with a link for the concert. Tune in at the concert time. The artist will provide you information to support them through an online donation via a service like PayPal or Venmo. Donations for house concerts typically range from $10-20, more for ensembles. There is NO PAYWALL. In this challenging time we’re all going through, we are working to connect people in isolation, support working musicians, but also be sensitive that many people are taking a huge financial hit. This may not be a good time for you to contribute. We still invite you to join us. We’re all in this together.

Harmonies. Soul-touching lyrics. Eye-catching stage presence. Underhill Rose has become synonymous with beautiful music, charming personalities, and rippling success. In the last four years, the band from Asheville, North Carolina has independently released two albums in the top of the Americana Music Association Airplay Chart and Roots Music Report Chart, all the while garnering critical acclaim from around the globe.
Get to know the joyful soaring voice of Molly Rose and her acoustic guitar and the distinctive styling of Eleanor Underhill’s open-back banjo and salty-blues vocals. Their close harmonies and charisma make most think they are sisters, and with their song-centered original compositions, Underhill Rose creates music that is real and inspired. See them on PBS Television, hear them on nationally-syndicated radio and at live performances, and you will know how Underhill Rose has carved out a distinctive place in the Americana-folk scene.
For their most recent release, the authentic, live sound was captured in their home state over two starry nights. Featuring original songs from their three studio albums, Underhill Rose’s Live covers the depth and joy of nearly a decade of musical partnership. The stripped-down sound highlights the soulful harmonies that originally brought Eleanor and Molly together to play music. By removing the bells and whistles of past recordings, Underhill Rose reveals the fundamental elements of their sound: a powerful partnership in full bloom.

The Revivalists
Apr 11 @ 8:00 pm
ExploreAsheville.com Arena

 

A remarkable thing happened to The Revivalists as they came upon their tenth anniversary as a band. The New Orleans-based septet scored a game-changing hit with “Wish I Knew You,” a wistful song from their third album, Men Amongst Mountains. Guided by dynamic percussion and punchy horns, the single features a contagious hook and feel-good chorus that has resonated with fans across all different genres. Though the album was released in July of 2015 (debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard Alternative Albums chart), the band’s break out single “Wish I Knew You” has a rare and undeniable staying power.  The song steadily picked up steam in 2016 spending over 40 weeks on the Billboard Adult Alternative Chart where it peaked at #1 and maintained for multiple weeks.  By 2017, the song crossed to Alternative radio rising quickly to #1 and breaking the Billboard chart record for most single-week spins ever at Alternative radio.  “Wish I Knew You” then peaked inside the Top 15 at Adult Pop Radio and ultimately spent 9 weeks in the Billboard Hot 100.
