MBM Special Announcement: 

From March 10-May 5 the Siskiyou Arts Museum in Dunsmuir will feature the art of former Siskiyou County resident and Music by the Mountain supporter Victor Aaron Medrano! 

Along with his wife Carol, Victor was an avid supporter of classical music and music education and participated with MBM in fulfilling its mission to bring world class classical music performances to Siskiyou County. Victor operated “behind the scenes” helping to setup concerts and our annual gala, and was often the friendly and cheerful “bartender” at MBM events.
