For 60 years, the National Repertory Orchestra has helped young musicians prepare for their respective professional musical careers while simultaneously uplifting our community. Each year, over 1,000 young adults from around the world audition for the NRO with hopes of being chosen for one of only 89 spots. The young musicians who are selected spend 8 weeks in Breckenridge where they gain training through performances in Summit County, master classes and workshops.
The NRO has been based in Breckenridge for the past 35 years. In years past, our community and our visitors have been enriched with exhilarating performances by the NRO every summer. The musical selections range from classical masterworks to modern pop to entertain people of all ages and uphold the NRO mission of “Changing Lives Through Music.”
We are very fortunate that although the NRO had to cancel this season’s performances, they have ensembled a group of alumni and production team members for string quartet pop-up concerts to take place this summer. Best of all, the free concerts that we at Breckenridge Associates have been holding on our front porch for the past 15 years will be included in this summer’s limited lineup.
Please join us July 15 and July 29 from 4-5pm for our traditional Free Porch Concert Series here at our office at 229 Main Street in Breckenridge. With the extended space we now have out front, there is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy these free outdoor concerts while reaping the benefits of classical music.
