Under the artistic direction of acclaimed conductor and BMC alumnus Keith Lockhart — Principal Conductor of the Boston Pops and the BBC Orchestra in London — the Brevard Music Center stands as one of this country’s premier summer training programs and festivals. Over the past eight decades, many of the world’s most famous musicians have graced the stage of our 1800-seat open air, lakeside auditorium during a music festival that welcomes over 40,000 attendees each summer.
