Brevard Music Center

349 Andante Lane
Brevard, NC 28712


The BrevardMusicCenter, a summer institute and festival, teaches gifted young musicians to prepare and perform great musical works at a high artistic level.

Since its beginning, the objective of the BrevardMusicCenter has been to provide music education of high quality. Early literature stated the Center's aims quite succinctly: "A Vacation with a Purpose: to develop the abilities and broaden the horizons of young musicians, to promote fellowship among participants, and to enrich our musical culture." Today's mission continues in this vein.

BrevardMusicCenter's program goes beyond lessons and rehearsals; students perform many different programs for a paying audience, expanding their confidence as well as their resumés. The BrevardMusicCenter's three orchestras, wind ensemble, piano, composition, and chamber music programs offer varied performance opportunities. A 6:1 student to faculty ratio provides a nurturing environment within the extensive performance season. Brevard students will go on to be leading performers and teachers; they are quite simply, a part of the future of music in America.

Boston Pops and Utah Symphony Conductor Keith Lockhart captured the Brevard experience quite elegantly: "Brevard held many 'firsts' for me: first conducting lessons, first great operas and was also when I first realized that music was going to be my life."
