Founded in 1963, the Britt Orchestra is a summer festival orchestra that features 90 professional musicians who come to the Rogue Valley from across the United States for three weeks of world-class performances at our outdoor venue in Jacksonville, Oregon. Under the baton of Music Director Teddy Abrams, each season includes five orchestral concerts with internationally acclaimed guest artists, a Symphony Pops performance, and a Britt Orchestra Spectacular that highlights the virtuosity of our Orchestra.
Additional festivities include the free BrittKids Koncerts, chamber music performances, open rehearsals, pre-concert conversations with guest artists and orchestra members, and special projects and collaborations with a variety of community groups, such as the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
Whether you’re a seasoned classical music enthusiast or a newcomer to the orchestra, the Britt Orchestra has something for you!
"While there are many benefits to living in the Rogue valley, I think the Britt Orchestra tops them all! I still cannot believe we have world-class musicians who assemble here every summer to produce the most remarkable music under the direction of Teddy Abrams. Teddy's enthusiasm for bringing our community together through music is infectious. The programs are fun, moving, enlightening, powerful and uplifting.
In all my years attending classical music concerts, I never felt as inspired by the sound of an orchestra as I am by our own Britt orchestra. What I experience is more than music. It is pure celebration."
