After an incredible 2011-2012 season, the Bitterroot Performing Arts Series is set to unleash the names of  the confirmed concerts for 2012-2013 Friday evening.

BPAC Executive Director Monica Grable said the line-up will be presented during downtown Hamilton's First Friday June 1 at the BPAC box office during a reception starting at 6pm.

The list has been closely guarded, though some in the community have sneaked little bits of information about the six performances. Have they told us? No!

So, just like you, we'll be ambling over to the BPAC box office on the 100 block of Main between 6 and 8pm Friday night and enjoy a little taste of wine or coffee and some tasty snacks from the valley's caterers and bakers, and find out who's coming to town!

We expect that the line-up will be as varied and entertaining as the past seasons. The quality of the performances has brought the series into it's 9th year. Grammy award winners have graced the stage of the Performing Arts Center at Hamilton High School, and there's no reason to think that will stop.

And, the added benefit of educational outreach clinics for our high school students from performers like Sweet Honey in the Rock puts the icing on the cake for the series.

KLYQ will be letting you know the line-up here on-line and on our morning newscasts at 7:30am Monday through Friday and, of course, on the Event Show Fridays at 8am, exclusively at 1240 on the AM radio dial.
