Brevard Music Center 2017 Summer Music Festival

Symphony, Opera, Pops, Chamber, Country, Bluegrass, Jazz...and YOU!

We invite you to enjoy performances as captivating as the view during Brevard Music Center's 81st season! Join us as one of the country's premier summer music festivals marks the 10th anniversary of Artistic Director Keith Lockhart. Together with our 400+ students, 80 faculty, and 40,000 summer festival attendees, celebrate BMC's educational and musical excellence with an inspired season of symphony, chamber, opera, jazz, bluegrass, pops, country, classical guitar, and more!

From June through August, witness 80 performances over 10 weeks and distinguished names in music including Garrick Ohlsson, Lee Ann Womack, Ricky Skaggs, Johannes Moser, Sarah Chang, Lyle Lovett, and many others. Experience a truly unique night at the movies featuring the epic film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial in Concert with live symphony. And participate in our season-long Festival within a Festival as we honor Kurt Weill — the celebrated and influential theater composer of The Threepenny Opera, the ballad "Mack the Knife", Street Scene, and other dramatic works.

Additional highlights of the 2017 BMC Summer Music Festival include a diverse offering of operatic productions such as Street Scene, Don Pasquale, and The Marriage of Figaro; classical favorites like Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3, and Verdi's Requiem; and a series of inspiring BMC Faculty and Student Spotlights.

Under the stars, by the lake, or in an intimate hall, this is the place to enjoy performances as captivating as the view! This is Brevard. Be inspired. Be here.
