the world to Birmingham… that’s what the Birmingham Music Club has been doing best since 1905. As
Birmingham’s oldest club, we work to present amazing artists of local, national and international renown and this year is no exception. We hope
you will join us for some great performances at venues all over the Magic City, including Samford University, our partner for ticketing and in many
of our presentations. For 110 years, the Music Club has been entertaining audiences with quality performances and classical musicians.
Ron Bourdages, our Executive Director, has been revitalizing the Music Club since 2011. One of his newest additions to the Music Club is the highly-enjoyed Young
People's Concert Series.
Be a part of the experience by joining us for one or more of our enchanting concerts!
In addition to our annual performance season, the BMC continues
to provide music education programs and our prestigious Music Scholarships for music majors attending Alabama colleges and
universities. Currently managed by our much appreciated Birmingham Music Club Guild, the BMC
has awarded over $500,000 in scholarships. Not only is our history truly amazing, and has certainly had an impact on
the cultural fabric of our city, but we also remain “young in spirit and in heart” and look forward to continuing
to bringing the best classical music has to offer to you our patrons, children, volunteers, and donors. Thanks
for joining us to share the exhilarating journey!
"The Birmingham Music Club is a music
presenting and producing organization that is more than 100 years old. The organization’s programming history is impressive
and includes titans of the music world, including Sergei Rachmaninoff, Leonard Bernstein, the Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra,
the New York City Opera National Company and others. The acclaimed violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and the widely regarded
opera star Denyce Graves were featured in this century. Despite world wars, the Great Depression, the dwindling steel industry,
civil rights struggles and other events that could have crippled or ended the BMC, the support of its members and the organization’s
commitment to the cultural life of Birmingham have kept the organization intact."
