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.
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!
