London International Music Festival - last call for 2014, and registration opening for 2015

Location: England, United Kingdom
Choir type: Children's and Youth Choirs
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.
Stop press - the United Nations Association is inviting selected participating 2014 LIMF groups to join a one-off event they are hosting to mark the United Nations Day of Friendship and the centenary of the start of World War I. Click here for more information.
           
 
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.

Our Artistic Director is Prof. André de Quadros.
 
 
"The London International Music Festival is certain to be a unique and musically compelling event bringing together musicians from different parts of the globe. A festival of this kind in London, one of the world's greatest cities, will bring great musical sharing and global understanding."
 
André de Quadros, conductor, ethnomusicologist, music educator, writer, and human rights activist has conducted and undertaken research in over forty countries around the globe.
 
He is a professor of music at Boston University. A sought after conductor and clinician, he is Music Director and Conductor of the Manado State University Choir (Indonesia) with which he has toured France, Sweden, Sri Lanka, and Poland in 2010 winning a first prize at the Warsaw International Competition, and in summer 2012 took the US by storm at the Yale International Choral Festival, New York City's River to River Festival, and engagements in Boston, Cincinnati, and Los Angeles.
 
An ardent human rights and social change activist, André de Quadros believes that consensus music-making can bring people and cultures together.  To that end, he has been at the forefront of efforts for music and social change.
