Welcome to Canada's largest orchestral music festival, based in Hamilton, Ontario. Classical, Opera, Broadway, Rock, Education -- we offer something for every musical taste.


Dearest Friends,

As this extraordinary year draws to a close, I am reminded what our holiday celebrations have in common – messages of light after darkness, hope amidst sorrow and joy through music in our everyday lives.

At Brott Music, we reflect and are grateful for the legacy Boris Brott left to this organization, to our audiences and to thousands of NAO musicians, here and around the world. We are grateful to have Maestro Alain Trudel step into the role of Artistic Director. He is brimming with artistic excellence and enthusiasm for Brott Music, BrottOpera, the National Academy Orchestra, and you, our audiences.

We are especially grateful for the 2022 outpouring of support from so many of you, which shows how deeply our community connections run. We pledge to honour Boris’ legacy and continue the excellence of each annual Festival.

On behalf of Maestro Trudel, our Board and Festival team, I wish you hope and joy for this Holiday season. May you continue to make music part of that joy.

Please stay tuned for our 2023 Festival.

Brott Music Festival’s office and venues are located on the ancestral land of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas. This land is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant to share and care for the Great Lakes region. Today, this land is home to many people from across Turtle Island.  We pledge to nurture and transform our relationships with our Indigenous brothers and sisters so we may share this land responsibly.
