Britt Orchestra plays Crater Lake

Crater Lake National Park – This weekend the Britt orchestra is taking its talents to one of the most iconic sights in the country.

Pure, beautiful, majestic, all words to describe Crater Lake.

“This is really big, it’s one of the biggest undertakings the Britt has ever done before,” said Sky Lose.

As well as the music it inspires.

“Working with Michael Gordon, he’s a big composer he spent several weeks up at Crater Lake working to get inspired to write this piece,” said Lose.

This weekend the Britt Orchestra will play a one-of-a-kind concert at the national park in honor of the 100 year anniversary of the National Park Service.

“We’re going to play in different places throughout the lake and you’re going to be right up next to the music to hear it, right up next to the musicians,” said Music Director Teddy Abrams.

100 musicians in total, the music itself is a testament to the sheer beauty of the lake and the volcanic ferocity that formed it.

“The special thing about this performance is it isn’t like a normal performance where it’s on stage and it’s amplified. You get to be up close and personal with the music,” said Abrams.


The concert is Friday and Saturday, July 29th & 29th. It’s free and open to the public but there are certain restrictions. For more information check out Crater Lake Project
