Brevard Music Center Celebrates 75th Season This Month

"The Brevard Music Center, known widely for its lively summer festival and educational institute that features a distinguished artist faculty, will begin its anniversary season on June 24....Eighteen different orchestra programs, five opera productions, wind ensemble, chamber music, recitals, pre-performance lectures, as well as a number of free events will make up the packed season of festival performances...'As we approach our 75th Anniversary Season, I have been touched with the strong sense of tradition coupled with the commitment to continue to teach and inspire talented students in new and innovative ways,' says Margaret Ryan, President and CEO of Brevard Music Center. 'I’m really looking forward to seeing Brevard Music Center move into the future,' says Ryan, who took the helm as President and CEO in February. Ryan adds that BMC Artistic Director Keith Lockhart and some of the artist faculty often compare Brevard Music Center to the fictional village of Brigadoon. 'It’s that ‘magical place’ in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains that comes to life as students and faculty study, learn, and perform great music together,' she says....For more than 40 years, opera has been a major part of the Brevard Music Center, and the 75th Anniversary festival is no different. Brevard Music Center’s Janiec Opera Company will have performances at the Porter Center at Brevard College for this season." [Source]
