A Message From Boris and Ardyth Brott: 

Dear Friends of Brott Music Festival,

The health and safety of our patrons, audience members, artists, fellows and staff are of utmost importance to Brott Music Festival. We wanted to share with you our efforts in assessing the potential risks posed by COVID-19.

This is a rapidly changing situation and considering we are 3 months away from the 2020 Festival, it is not possible to predict the effect of COVID-19. At this time, the Festival is scheduled to proceed. We will let you know as soon as possible if any changes or cancellations need to be made should this change.

Tickets are still available for purchase online at our website. Our staff is currently working remotely, packages and single tickets are available over the phone by leaving a message at our office (905-525-7664) and a staff member will call you back to complete your purchase. Please support the Festival and purchase your tickets.

Your support during this uncertain time will help Brott Music Festival continue to play an important role in Hamilton and across the country by hiring Canadian emerging professional artists.

We are monitoring the situation very closely and will continue to follow the advice of local, provincial and national public health officials in making decisions regarding the operations of Brott Music Festival, including the 2020 Festival.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support of Brott Music Festival. Stay well, don't forget to wash your hands, and we look forward to seeing you at the Festival.

Boris Brott, Artistic Director
Ardyth Brott, Executive Director

The Sound of Music, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s final collaboration, is one of the world’s most beloved musicals.

The Sound of Music tells the tale of young postulant Maria, whose free spirit has trouble fitting into the rules and regulations of the Abbey. Maria leaves to serve as the governess for the Von Trapp children. Through her kindness and her spunk, she transforms the family home from a place of dour rules to one filled with joy, with laughter, and especially music! In the process, Maria wins the hearts of all seven children--and their widower father, Captain Von Trapp.

The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre.

Fully staged with a full symphony orchestra, boasting classics you know and love such as Sixteen Going on Seventeen, My Favourite Things, Edelweiss, Climb Ev'ry Mountain and How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria!

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll be singing all the way home!
