You are invited to put your name on our list of valued volunteers at the Blue Mountain Festival. Volunteers are the backbone of the Festival. We couldn't achieve the excellent quality of our educational and performance events without them. Each year the Blue Mountain Festival grows in community support and the quality of its programs. If you would like to help to make the upcoming season the most successful yet, you can volunteer to provide much needed assistance in helping us produce Festival activities and events. For more information please contact Sherri Anderson, Executive Director, at (484) 832-4660. 

Supporting the Blue Mountain Festival

Funding for the Blue Mountain Festival comes from the following sources: student tuition fees, individual cash gifts, business & corporate sponsorships, government and private foundation grants, and in-kind donations.

Thank You
BMF would also like to acknowledge our many annual donors who donated to the Stretto Youth Chamber Orchestra Tour of China this year.
