FORUM at Lees McRae College Celebrates 40 Years in the High Country This Summer

FORUM Music Series at Lees-McRae College began 40 years ago with the goal of bringing cultural events to the High Country. Early programs included speakers such as General William Westmoreland, Charles Kuralt and legendary musicians Doc Watson and the Aldridge Sisters. Recent favorites have included “Three Redneck Tenors”, finalists on America’s Got Talent, and Daniel Rodriquez, the “singing policeman” who studied Opera with Placido Domingo.
