The London International Music Festival is a uniquely inspired annual performing arts event, taking place in late July each year.
With a focus on education and performance, the London International Music Festival includes four days based around the prestigious Central Hall Westminster, where participants will experience a range of performance opportunities, master classes, workshops, an adjudicated concert and a unique massed performance grand finale.
This amateur youth festival is open to ensembles of all musical and performing arts disciplines, including choral and instrumental ensembles and dance groups.
Learning to perform is all about experience. Our festival is designed to give participants the opportunity to immerse themselves in world-class musical opportunities in one of the most famous musical environments in the world.
With masterclasses, workshops, lectures and even opportunities to visit the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall close by, we believe our festival is without parallel for giving young international choirs a platform for amazing growth.
