BAMSO Mission Statement

We believe that music enriches the lives of people of all ages.  Through our diverse music programming, accessible venues and no cost concerts, we provide the citizens of Blue Ash, Montgomery and surrounding communities with an enjoyable, affordable quality music experience for audiences of all ages.  

BAMSO concerts provide a time when people from all walks of life can sit together to enjoy creativity. Neighborhoods where children play in the streets, families rock on the porch, and citizens congregate in the town square are no longer common.  BAMSO events are a conduit for just such activities in our community.  

Please consider a making a donation to BAMSO so we can keep our concerts free to everyone wishing to attend! www.bamso.org.
