Brevard Music Center provides a congenial summer community for young musicians of exceptional gifts. Four hundred students, from nearly every state in the U.S. and from several other countries, enroll each year. All students and an artist faculty of sixty live and work on the Music Center campus, 180 wooded acres in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina.
More than eighty public performances, the outcome of study, comprise Brevard's renowned summer festival and attract tens of thousands of listeners each year.
Brevard has two divisions, one for high school students and one for students of college age and older. The two divisions have separate curricula and distinct campus life policies. All students reside on campus.
The minimum age for admission to the High School division is 14. The minimum age for admission to the College division is 18, and students in the College division must have completed a year as a full-time college student before they can enroll at Brevard. The maximum age in the college division is 29.
