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’. Set in and around Aberystwyth Arts Centre, the Summer School covers the disciplines of solo violin, viola, cello, clarinet, clarinet quintet and saxophone as well as voice, composition, conducting, and chamber ensembles with exceptional international professional musicians.
Musicfest courses are open to all musicians over the age of 16, (although some courses do allow younger students with chaperones).
Most courses consist of three or four 90-minute coached sessions each day leading to a ‘Showcase Concert’ towards the end of the week.
