The Birth of Brevard

Have you visited WDAV’s blog Of Note recently? We’ve written about new contests for classical composers, classical music composed for cats (seriously), and must-have new releases you have to hear (have you heard Matt Haimovitz’s and Christopher O’Riley’s latest?).
Visit wdav.org/blog to see what you've missed!

The Brevard Music Center and Summer Festival, nestled in the North Carolina Mountains, didn’t always exist in the form we know and love today. It actually began in WDAV’s own (future) backyard!

Learn the origin story of the distinguished summer program and its local ties to Davidson College in The Birth of Brevard.
