Alumni Open Mic

At Montreat, we know how to appreciate a good night of song and fellowship! Over the years, it has been our tradition to host a form of open mic at Homecoming, which includes performances from our current students and alumni. Email Samantha Northey if you or a group would be interested in performing a song or two.

I'm looking at you: GA Singers, worship leaders, and independent musicians!

Make sure to pre-register!
