2017 Bishop Community Concerts Association Board Members

2017 Bishop Community Concerts Association Board Members

Since the beginning, Bishop Community Concerts Association has offered a season while evolving over the years. CCS went through a series of changes and eventually ran into serious financial and legal problems in the late 1990s.  Our Board of Directors made the choice to divest from this group and make a go of it on our own.  This has worked well and among other things has given us a much wider choice of programs to present to our audience.

Our goal remains “to offer our community the opportunity to experience the magic of live performance by bringing artist and audience together.”

Bishop Community Concerts Association offers an outreach program to K-12 students in Inyo and Mono Counties. This program encourages interest and appreciation of performing arts. Select artists provide an outreach program for students during the school day. The outreach program provides the opportunity for local youth to experience live performing arts in a setting that is both fun and educational. During this program the artists don’t just perform, they interact with students to inspire an interest in performing arts.

Volunteers are needed to continue bringing these outstanding artists to Bishop. Consider joining the BCCA Board. If you have a passion for performing arts and have time to share please send us an e-mail at: bishopcca@gmail.com or talk to any board member at the next concert!
