Britt Star Award
The Britt Star Awards Program recognizes outstanding music students in Rogue Valley public schools, and includes a visit to each participating school by Britt Festival Orchestra Music Director Teddy Abrams.
In 2020, and with the exclusive sponsorship of Dutch Bros, we were able to expand the program to include 12 awards for 7 schools. Award winners receive a small cash scholarship, two lawn passes to attend all of the Britt Festival Orchestra concerts in the coming season, and a Certificate of Merit. Band and orchestra students are nominated by their music teacher at each participating school in May, and awards are given at the end of the school year.
Britt also acknowledges several Jacksonville Elementary School students for their artistic achievements each year with three lawn seats to a Britt Festival Orchestra concert of their choice and a Certificate of Merit.
