Britt Orchestra Prepares To Begin Season

Big thanks go to the people who thought a grassy hillside would be a good place to enjoy concerts of classical music.  That's how the Britt Music & Art Festival got its start in Jacksonville, in the summer of 1963. 

The Orchestra Season returns on July 25th for its regular season of seven concerts. 

But "regular" is a relative term.  New works and surprises are part of any Britt Orchestra program.  Musical Director Teddy Abrams visits the studio to talk about what's coming to the hill.
