Pat Pendley’s Get to Know Oregon Blog Volume # 21 The Britt Festival

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 such as Emanuel Ax, Pinchas Zukerman, Midori, Jean-Pierre Rampal, Christopher Parkening, Lynn Harrell, Samuel Ramey and Frederica von Stade join the orchestra each August to present a series of extraordinary concerts under a canopy of stars.Prior to each concert, there are informal pre-concert  conversations, in the lower garden area 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 often feature conversations with the guest artists, giving the listener a little added insight for in the concert.

Some evenings feature additional special events on the Britt  hill such as a catered champagne picnic accompanied by live         music. Great music, good friends and a spectacular outdoor setting   make Britt Classical hard to beat!
