-Breckenridge Music has been around for 38 years!
-The Breckenridge Music story began in the summer of 1980, when a group of full- and part-time residents put together a ten-day music festival to mark the anniversary celebration of Father Dyer Church. The event was so well received by residents, visitors, and musicians that plans were made to have it become an annual event.
-Breckenridge Music’s program is incredibly diverse. This summer you can enjoy everything from Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue to Chris Brubeck, outdoor yoga with live classical music, to world-renowned musicians and nationally-recognized touring acts!

Take a break from the snow and celebrate spring in Paris with music spanning three centuries. Breckenridge Music Festical presents "Flavors from France" at Father Dyer Church.
Leclair’s ornate Violin Sonata recalls the frills, lace and perfumes of Versailles, while Franck’s “Trio de Salon” draws you back to Paris’ colorful cafés and music halls.
