The Festival

The Summer Festival of Music has been running at the University of Birmingham for over twenty years. The project is a fortnight-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 7 to the 19 June, and following a series of concerts from our various ensembles will culminate with a production of Britten's Albert Herring 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, or investigate the concerto competition if performing is your thing! For more information about rehearsals, click here!
