The Britt Festival Orchestra (BFO) brings a unique group of musicians together each summer to perform under the leadership of Music Director Teddy Abrams, a rising star in the symphonic world. Our summer festival spans 20 days in late July and early August and includes six performances with the full BFO, plus additional events such as chamber music concerts and curated performances for children, all at our extraordinary outdoor venue in historic Jacksonville, Oregon.

Established in 1963, the BFO is an all-star ensemble that meets each summer in the historic and beautiful southern Oregon town of Jacksonville. Our musicians come from many of the most important and respected year-round orchestras in the country and teach at some of the finest conservatories and universities in the world. Our concert hall, the Britt Pavilion, is a natural outdoor amphitheater under the great Oregon sky. Our audiences, often including more than two thousand people per concert, sit on the Britt Hill and experience a remarkably diverse selection of music under the stars, ranging from early Renaissance to numerous living American composers.

Additional festivities include free BrittKids Koncerts, open rehearsals, pre-concert conversations with guest artists and orchestra members, and special projects and collaborations with a variety of community groups, such as the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

Whether you’re a seasoned classical music enthusiast or a newcomer to the orchestra, the Britt Festival Orchestra has something for you!
