A campaign to support year-round Breck Music Education programs and free community events.
A community where everyone discovers, experiences, values and is connected by the power of music.
To present diverse and high-quality live music performances and broad-based community music education.
Founded in 1981, Breckenridge Music impacts the community by improving the quality of life for Summit County residents and visitors, increasing access to the arts, fostering a deeper understanding of music for all ages and contributing to a robust Breckenridge economy. The non-profit organization serves approximately 15,000 people each year through its three core programs: Breckenridge Music Festival, Breck Music Education and Breck Music Presents.
Music isn’t just a spectator sport. It’s a way of life.
Our job is to help build a culture of music in Summit County, and we need your help. Breck Music’s summer campaign, Music for Life, Music for Locals, supports a new programming strategy to achieve this lofty goal: fulfill key community needs by connecting local performing musicians, local kids, local teachers and local audiences in regular, recurrent music-based experiences.
In 2019, we piloted this strategy in designing a number of free community events and in-school education programs to great success. For example:
Middle School Honors String Ensembles
Local teaching artists lead weekly chamber music coaching sessions with promising young string students. The 18-week program culminates in a mini-concert adjacent to a Breck Music performance featuring national talent.
Make a gift today and help grow our in-school honors program and expand community events like the Acoustic Flow and Tiny Porch series into a regular year-round schedule. With your help we can build a community where everyone discovers, experiences, values and is connected by the power of music.
