Welcome to The Brevard Philharmonic and Your Artistic Director Search Season!

Throughout our 41 year history the goal has always been to deliver to you, our audience, compelling music, played by the highest quality musicians while showcasing celebrated, world class guest artists.

This 2017-2018 season is no exception. However, this year there is a bonus.

With 54 applicants of the highest caliber from all over the world, whittled down to 4 Artistic Director/Conductor possibilities, every concert will spotlight not only a splendid guest soloist, but each candidate will conduct a program filled with music of his or her own choosing, delivering what promises to be a series of dynamic, varied, delightful musical Sunday afternoons.

The eight month search process where the members of the committee filtered through 54 cover letters, resumes, video links and sample programs, will culminate with these four live performances. At these concerts, you, the audience, and the search committee, will be seeing…and hearing… these conductor candidates in person, with the future new artistic director in mind.

“What the search committee has been through so far is nothing compared to the decision we’re going to have to make in April,” said Jan Hart, Philharmonic Board member and chair of the search committee. “All four candidates are so strong.”

So welcome to the 41st season of your Brevard Philharmonic. This 2017-2018 Artistic Director Search Season promises to be the orchestra’s most exciting yet. We are delighted that you have chosen to be a part of it.
