Leadership Circle

Blue Heron welcomes a community of artists, collaborators, friends, financial partners, aficionados, and emeritus board members as advisors and mentors through its Leadership Circle. This non-governing collective provides a unique and mutually beneficial engagement experience in support of Blue Heron’s goals and growth.

Members support Blue Heron’s goals and growth by attending biannual meetings in support of our annual plan, musical program content, community engagement, and/or fundraising efforts. Members are encouraged to provide feedback and/or offers of assistance or volunteer opportunities.
