FORUM Summer Concert Series at Lees-McRae College

Forum at Lees McRae

Monday Nights, June, July & August
This summer concert and cultural series at nearby Lees-McRae College includes a big variety of live music performances, often by nationally touring artists. The  series is usually presented on Monday evenings. FORUM was organized in 1979 by a small group of summer residents for the purpose of bringing a stimulating series of cultural programs to the area.
