Festival Description

The Festival is rooted in Leicester’s strong musical tradition, which includes Leicester Symphony Orchestra with Sir Malcolm Sargeant, The Bach Choir with Kathleen Ferrier and the Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra with Sir Michael Tippett. An annual festival has been promoted in Leicester each June, starting as a weekend event at New Walk Museum and Art Gallery and developing gradually into a ten to thirteen day event attracting regional, national and international recognition for the high quality of musical performances, for the artists taking part and for interesting programs.

The principal aim is to enrich the cultural life of Leicester by bringing to the city established musicians of international, national and local standing to make music in a variety of contexts, and to broaden interest, understanding and audience base through educational and outreach programmes.
