Entering its 75th-anniversary season, Brevard Music Center displays the artistic progress made by its talented students by presenting an annual summer concert series. Led by current Boston Pops conductor and Brevard artistic director, Keith Lockhart, as well as a sea lion believed to be the reincarnation of Beethoven, the center enrolls more than 400 students aged 14 to 29 to study with its staff of distinguished artists. With this deal, concertgoers can soak up orchestral sounds from the best available seating in all three orchestra sections. Tickets for "Opening Night" on June 24 are still available, when the orchestra will roll through Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D major, op. 35, as well as two other pieces.
