Those passing the corner of Probart and Caldwell streets in Brevard will notice changes to the familiar sights throughout the summer.

To celebrate its summer festival, which begins Saturday, the Brevard Music Center has temporarily redecorated the retaining wall that runs alongside Probart Street with a music-themed message.

The newly painted wall now declares "Beethoven Lives" in bold black lettering.

Visitors to the Brevard Music Center will pass the new sign throughout the summer as they travel from downtown businesses to the Music Center campus.

"This is a very exciting project for us," said Mark Weinstein, BMC president. "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the City of Brevard on a project that helps welcome Music Center guests throughout the summer, and helps beautify downtown in the long run."

BMC production staff members cleaned and painted the retaining wall prior to the project and will paint over the sign at the end of the center's summer festival.

All that will be left at the end of August is a newly cleaned, white wall.

The project is part of the Music Center's effort to make classical music approachable and fun.

Each summer, the Music Center brings more than 400 of the nation's top music students to Brevard for seven weeks of intensive study and performance.

The Music Center's summer festival includes 80 performances, many of which are presented free of charge.
