Mountain Home Music
The Mountain Home Music Theater
Looking for some of the best historic North Georgia and Western North Carolina live music entertainment? Look no further. The 2023 Mountain Home Music Concert Season promises to surpass all expectations. We are celebrating our 23rd season at the classic little red building nestled in the mountains of North Georgia located on Highway 76 East, 1/2 mile west of Hiawassee and a little bit east of Young Harris. Come and enjoy your favorite country, bluegrass, and gospel music along with a whole lot of “oldies.” It’s the songs you know and love and even a touch of comedy everyone can relate to.
Mr. Larry Barrong opened and ran the original Mountain Home Music Theater from 1984 to 1993. It was located just down the street from our current location and seated about 800 country music enthusiasts.
Then Miss Stella Berrong (Larry’s mom) and her late husband built and opened the current Mountain Home Music Theater location in 2000.
For the next 20 years the Mountain Home Music Theater and Miss Stella have brought warm country charm entertainment to our mountain communities.
Sadly, the December 12, 2020 Christmas show featuring the Mountain Home Music Band was to be the final show at the Theater. Mrs. Berrong had decided to permanently close for health reasons–Miss Stella turned 93 on November 5th, 2022.
“This is the end of the musical chapter of my life,” Miss Stella said. However, she ensured the community that the building’s next inhabitant would be “good people” as Christian Financial Ministries would begin leasing the building in January. “It is real good people taking it over,” Berrong said. “I was just going to lock the doors and go to the house. I didn’t want to rent it for music because I don’t want alcohol in the building–I’ve never had it and never will.”
The good news is, as a service to our local communities, Christian Financial Ministries has worked with Miss Stella for the last two years to keep the tradition of the Mountain Home Music Theater alive and well. The 2023 concert season features some of the best live music entertainment this side of Nashville the first Saturday of each month from April through December. There is no charge for admission, refreshments, or any of the materials Christian Financial Ministries has to offer. As a 501-c-3 Nonprofit Ministry, Christian Financial Ministries does ask for a “lover offering” to help fund their many community services all of which are offered at no charge.
