Overview
More
Brevard Music Center is, at once, a place, a summer institute, and a festival. The Music Center is situated on a wooded 180-acre campus in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina. Founded in 1936, the Music Center has matured into one of this country's premier summer training programs and festivals. More than 400 gifted students, ages 14 through post-college, come to the Music Center to study with members of a distinguished artist faculty and with renowned guest artists. For seven weeks, students participate in a vigorous program of instruction that includes ensembles, private lessons, and chamber music. Brevard's hallmark is the powerful sense of community that re-emerges every June, as faculty and students work together to present more than 80 concerts to the public. The total audience each summer numbers more than 30,000. For decades the Brevard Music Center has inspired devotion not only among its students and faculty but also among its listeners and among a vast corps of volunteers. That hundreds of persons have purchased homes in western North Carolina expressly to be near the Brevard Music Center gives some measure of the Center's significance to its community.

Great small outdoor venue. Beautiful location, top notch music. So wonderful to see up and coming students play with world class musicians. The only place in the region to hear decent classical music.

Summer Festival was wonderful! Different concerts, operas and orchestras. The large Music Camp venue is a great draw for students, faculty and guest conductors. Over 400 students, many sponsors and contributors. Fantastic programming.

The music offerings at the BMC are so varied and exceptional. The main reason for our 3 day stay in the Brevard/Asheville area was for the music. We attended two evening concerts- both worth every penny we spent on tickets. Wished we had been able...More

I attended a graduation here in June and was amazed by the facility. I wish my city would invest in such a functional outdoor venue. I'll be back for sure.
