Music, Art and Cultural Opportunities
Breckenridge International Festival of Art happens every August and brings together classes, performances and visual art in the environment. See BreckCreate for details.
Year round you'll find courses in techniques such as drawing, painting, ceramics, metalsmithing, glass blowing and many more. Visual art exhibitions are installed in the lobby of the Masonic Hall curated by BreckCreate and course offerings change nearly every month. Two artist residency studios are open to the public. Residency rotates along with class offerings.
The Town of Breckenridge also maintains a public art collection which can be enjoyed on a self-guided tour.
The National Repertory Orchestra performs at the Riverwalk Center, every June and July. The NRO is a group of young professional musicians interviewed and selected each year. Filling in the summer months with more classical music, the Breckenridge Music Festival uses the talents of professional musicians on a summer break from their regular jobs. These performances continue throughout the year, but more frequently in the summer.
The front porch at our Breckenridge Associates Real Estate office on Main Street hosts the NRO a half a dozen times each summer for the NRO Porch Series.
Colorado Mountain College hosts the Met Opera HD Live series and many lecture programs as well as its many courses for full-time students and life-long learners. See the CMC Breck-Dillon's event calendar.
The Town of Breckenridge supports the Backstage Theater located on Ridge Street. The Backstage is a profession theater company that produces about six plays each year, three that alternate during the months of winter and three in summer. You can view the Backstage calendar online.
