Your 2021 Festival Highlights

If you missed any of our digital events or opportunities, look no further. You can now enjoy a little of the MusicFest 2021 experience right from the comfort of your own home.

For one week everyone lives, breathes and dreams music

The spectacular coastline of Cardigan Bay in West Wales is the perfect backdrop for one of the finest music festivals in the UK – Musicfest Aberystwyth. Since 1986, we have hosted the exciting fusion of a world-class music festival and a summer school, attracting an international rostra of artists, teachers, students and audience alike.

Summer School

This year we will offer a selection of courses online and we hope that in 2022 we will be teaching in person

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

 

International Music Festival

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.
