BMC Festival Still On Schedule


Last updated 3/18/2020 at 2:57pm

The Brevard Music Center continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 updates and guidance. Our first priority is always to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, patrons, staff and the Brevard community.

We are fortunate that our 2020 Summer Music Festival pre-season concerts do not begin until the “BMC Presents: Bryan Sutton’s North Carolina Guitar Celebration” on May 30 and that our “Opening Night: A Beethoven Celebration” is more than three months away on June 26.

At this time, all 2020 BMC Summer Music Festival concerts and events are still scheduled to proceed as planned.

The good news is that student applications for our premier Summer Music Institute remain strong, as do ticket sales for our summer festival. We continue to plan for an exceptional 2020 season highlighted by the opening of our exquisite new 400-seat Parker Concert Hall, a season-long [email protected] Festival, and a diverse array of concerts and world-class artists including Keith Lockhart, Bryan Sutton, Jane Monheit, Garrick Ohlsson, Gil Shaham, Ray Chen, Johannes Moser, Shannon Whitworth, Woody Platt, Béla Fleck, and more!

Single tickets go on sale at on April 1 and our Whittington-Pfohl Box Office is still scheduled to open May 18.

As always, we want patrons and students to feel confident that they are not at financial risk with us if the season is disrupted. Therefore, should we be forced to cancel any performances or educational programs, the Music Center will issue full refunds.

In our continued efforts to ensure the safety of our staff, patrons, and the wider community, Brevard Music Center — in association with Brevard College and First United Methodist Church (FUMC) — will cancel the free April 6 and May 4 “First Mondays” concerts at the Porter Center (Brevard College) and free April 7 and May 5 “Chamber Music Tuesdays” concerts at FUMC in Hendersonville. These concerts are not part of the BMC 2020 Summer Music Festival.

Please join us in taking the extra precautions and following the recommendations of health agencies. We wish you and your loved ones good health and safety and look forward to seeing you soon.
