Brevard Music Center Festival
Our 2014 season features the return of longtime favorites, the BMC debut of new stars, and, as always, performances of some of classical music's greatest masterpieces.
We are thrilled to open our 2014 festival on Saturday, June 21, with a special performance by one of the world's most acclaimed violinists–Itzhak Perlman! A Kennedy Center Honoree and multiple Grammy winner, Perlman's 50-year career has included performances with the world's top orchestras, television and film appearances, and concerts for heads of state including Queen Elizabeth II and President Obama. Perlman will join BMC Artistic Director Keith Lockhart and the Brevard Music Center Orchestra for an evening of his most well-loved works from film, television and classical repertoire.
Other orchestral highlights include the return of all-star pianist Garrick Ohlsson, A Night at the Movies featuring film score favorites, a special one-hour family concert, and the Season Finale celebration featuring JoAnn Falletta and pianist Conrad Tao.
