Hear Brevard on the Radio

You owe it to yourself to take a listen to at least one of the concerts from the Brevard Music Festival that classical stations WDAV (in Charlotte) and WCQS (in Brevard). The show is called Open Air Brevard, and it's on Sundays at 3 PM.  The orchestra is made up of students and faculty. The quality of the performances from the kids is really high, and the faculty is really committed.

Here's a video a scenes from the Fourth of July band concert. It's not the most exciting clip you've ever seen, but it'll give you an idea of what it's like here. You can see my in-laws at 1:14. People really like the cannons in the 1812 Overture here, by the way.
