Asheville Bravo Concerts
Asheville Bravo Concerts has been bringing the world's finest entertainment to Western North Carolina for almost eight decades. The area's oldest non-profit arts organization, Bravo presents an annual series of internationally acclaimed classical music, opera, ballet, and other classically based works. Bravo believes the arts are essential to a healthy community, and to that end has expanded the scope of programming to include artists with more popular appeal and an increasing number of family friendly shows. The most important change in enlarging Bravo's audience members is through the Music Education Partnership Program (MEPP). MEPP is made up of three components: subsidized or free tickets for traditionally underserved populations including students; music education programs presented in the public schools; and education programs for the general public. Bravo has a small curriculum, for teachers and leaders in surrounding schools and communities to be used before and after attending the concerts. As Asheville Bravo Concerts audience expands, the organization stays true to its genesis by continuing to bring the world's finest performances to the community.
