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’.

For one week everyone lives, breathes and dreams music

Summer School Goes ONLINE

This year we will offer a selection of courses on line and we hope that in 2021 we will be teaching in person

The Summer School is unique in offering  individual coaching, structured chamber music opportunities, orchestral experience and performance experience.


Festival Concerts

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. For concert brochure click here
