Brevard Music Center 2013 Season Begins May 1

The Brevard Music Center provides a congenial summer community for young musicians of exceptional gifts. Four hundred students, from nearly every state in the U.S. and from several other countries, enroll each year. All students and an artist faculty of sixty live and work on the Music Center campus, 180 wooded acres in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina.

The Brevard Music Center’s 2013 season features seven weeks of classical masterworks including Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto, Stravinsky’s Firebird, and Beethoven’s beloved Fifth Symphony. The summer festival also includes an outstanding lineup of guest artists ranging from rising stars of the classical world, such as pianist Ji-Yong and violinist Bella Hristova, to two of today’s most celebrated soloists — pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet and violinist Joshua Bell.

Subscription sales for the 2013 season will begin March 8, with single tickets scheduled to go on sale May 1.  Buy Tickets
