High School Orchestral Studies

June 25 - August 9, 2020

Orchestral performance forms the heart of the Brevard Music Center. Students who play orchestral instruments or saxophone may enroll in the Orchestral Studies program.

All students in the High School Orchestral Studies program:

  • rehearse daily and perform extensively in various ensembles
  • receive weekly private lessons
  • participate in formal chamber music study coached by BMC's artist faculty
  • may perform in solo and chamber concerts
  • may participate in masterclasses
  • may attend open rehearsals with world-renowned concert soloists
  • may compete in the Jan and Beattie Wood Concerto Competition
  • may attend nearly 80 orchestra, chamber, solo, and opera performances

Students in the High School Division will encounter older students at concerts, in studio and masterclasses, and in the cafeteria, providing valuable opportunities for guidance and mentorship. However, high school students have their own ensembles, their own residences, their own campus life system, and their own social activities.
