The spectacular coastline of Cardigan Bay in West Wales is a fine backdrop for this inspirational week. Aberystwyth Arts Centre’s MusicFest is an enticing fusion of Music Festival and Summer School; of experience and learning; of performance and appreciation. The engagement of audience, student, and artist alike creates the unique community atmosphere of MusicFest – ‘refreshing, rewarding and thoroughly inspirational’.
The Summer School is unique in offering organised, structured chamber music opportunities and coaching, as well as superb learning experiences through the festival of concerts given by the tutors themselves: leading performers as well as inspirational teachers.
The daily evening and lunchtime festival concerts, together with student foyer performances and impressive student showcase concerts at the end of the week are powerful reminders of the rejuvenating effect of listening to live music of such a high calibre.
Through their generous sponsorship and donations, our charity Friends of MusicFest Aberystwyth supports promising young musicians who may not otherwise be able to afford to attend MusicFest, enabling them to benefit from outstanding professional tuition.
