Founded in 1963, the Britt Classical Festival features a professional orchestra of 90 musicians who come from all over the United States for a three-week stay in southern Oregon. Internationally renowned guest artists join the orchestra each August to present a series of extraordinary concerts under a canopy of stars. The season includes seven orchestral concerts, plus smaller chamber music events and receptions.
The 2015 lineup will be announced Thursday, February 5, and tickets will go on sale to members and non-members on Friday, February 6.
Prior to each concert, there are informal pre-concert conversations in Britt's new Performance Garden at 7 p.m. for those who want to learn a little more about the music and composers. The talks are hosted by Jefferson Public Radio, and feature conversations with the guest artists, giving the listener a little added insight into the concert.
Great music, good friends and a spectacular outdoor setting make Britt Classical hard to beat!
