The Festival

The Summer Festival of Music has been running at the University of Birmingham for over twenty years. The project is a week-long event organised by students to create music-making opportunities for performers from across the university community. Each year the festival welcomes new participants to a variety of roles - from conductors and composers to the many students who make up the ensembles and the organising committee, there is something for everyone.

This year's Festival will take place from the 8 to the 20 June, and following a series of concerts from our various ensembles will culminate with a production of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro by the Summer Festival Opera - see our events diary for more information.

In addition to these, we will be hosting a variety of fundraising events in the run-up to the Festival, with more details to be announced soon.

If you are a composer, consider entering our composition competition, and have your piece performed at the chamber ensembles concert. For more information about rehearsals, visit the participants' page.
