What could be better? A beautiful mountain evening in a lovely setting listening to superb musicians conducted by a magical maestro! Brevard Music Festival is a great sumner tradition. If you haven’t been, don’t miss the 2020 season!

Outstanding performance - weather was perfect for the open air concert facility. The music which was performed by students was incredible. The piano soloist was also outstanding. I hope to be able to attend more performances before the season is over.

The July 4 concert which is an integral part of the Summer Festival should not be missed. The young high school student musicians who make up the Brevard Symphonic Winds, the 4 college students who are part of the opera company, and the flamboyant conductor, Kraig Alan Williams, made this a superb concert, highlighted by Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, complete with cannon fire. The venue is very pleasant with a choice of lawn or auditorium seating, our choice and we had superb seats in the center of row H. Since we arrived early, we had plenty of time to buy a snack although we saw a lot of people bringing their own food. There was plenty of parking and although it was fairly easy to get out, I was totally unimpressed how discourteous some drivers can be when leaving a parking area.

My spouse and I share a common expression: "Music makes life go better." Brevard Music Center is a testament to the truth in that statement. What a gorgeous place, for the eyes, ears and soul. We had a wonderful evening last weekend at BMC, enjoying a program of all British composers with conductor Keith Lockhart. The students are so talented, eager, and obviously enjoying themselves on stage. We can't wait to go back!

The Brevard Music Center is a jewel in the crown of this little mountain town. There is nothing more tranquil than a summer evening concert by the lake at the music center. The music is exceptional--conducted by world class composed and performed by the most talented musicians under 35 in the world. I amma blown away time after time when I visit there. You can buy tickets to sit inside the open-air theater, but my husband and I prefer to bring our own chair and sit outside under the stars with a bottle of wine for just $20. The best thing is that you can wait until the last minute to determine if the weather is good. Every summer, the orchestra performs the entire sound track of a well-known movie while the movie and dialogue are playing. Last year's performance of West Side story was superb. The timing is so crucial and they never missed a beat. This year's performance of Raiders of the Lost Ark should be just as good. .
