Since 1953, the mission of the Alleghany Highlands Arts Council has been to provide the highest quality, professional performing arts events to our community and to introduce the performing arts to area youth through presentations of music, theatre and dance. A further purpose is to cultivate and nurture talent within this community. This is achieved by providing opportunity for local performers through participation in the Alleghany Highlands Chorale, the Alleghany Highlands Orchestra and Alleghany Community Theatre.
