Brott Music Festival celebrates 25 years – The sounds of cool classics, hot jazz and classic rock are in the air – it must be summer! The Brott Music Festival returns for its 25th season and is promised to be better than ever!

While the Festival celebrates its 25th year, the National Academy Orchestra (NAO), the Festival’s orchestra-in-residence, will commemorate its 25th milestone in 2013. The NAO comprises top graduating music students from across Canada and players from the country’s finest orchestras who act as “mentor musicians” in the stands. “Our orchestra is unusual and enthusiastic – featuring Canada’s most accomplished young musicians embarking on professional careers with seasoned performers,” says Brott.
