The latest word from Vikki at Bybee's Historic Inn is complimentary transportation to/from the Britt Festival in Jacksonville, OR! Join Vikki and Tina Marie at their authentic Oregon bed and breakfast for a night or two, or a week, while attending the Britt Festival!
Vikki writes: The Classical Festival at the Britt has started and will continue through the month of August.
Founded in 1963, the Britt Classical Festival features a professional orchestra of 90 musicians who come from all over the United States for a three-week stay in Southern Oregon. Internationally renowned guest artists such as Emanuel Ax, Pinchas Zukerman, Midori, Jean-Pierre Rampal, Christopher Parkening, Lynn Harrell, Samuel Ramey and Frederica von Stade join the orchestra each August to present a series of extraordinary concerts under a canopy of stars.
Prior to each concert, there are informal pre-concert conversations, in the lower garden area at 7 p.m. for those who want to learn a little more about the music and composers. The talks are hosted by Jefferson Public Radio, and often feature conversations with the guest artists, giving the listener a little added insight for in the concert.
Some evenings feature additional special events on the Britt hill such as a catered champagne picnic accompanied by live music.
Please check out the lineup at the Britt website http://www.brittfest.org/performances . There is nothing sweeter than classical music under the stars and the August weather is perfect for an evening outdoors. As a guest of Bybee’s Historic Inn, we provide a free VIP shuttle to and from the Britt.Bybee's Historic Inn, a popular Oregon wedding location, is relatively close to Ashland Oregon lodging, but being located on the end of Jacksonville, it's even closer to the Britt Festival. Thanks for the tip, Vikki!
