There are many different types of festivals which we are able to arrange your participation in. These include but are not limited to: 

  •  International music festivals such as Montreux Jazz and Jazz à Vienne

  • Locally organised arts festivals or summer festivals, with a variety of events comprising concerts, theatre, exhibitions taking place at various venues across a town or region

  • Gala festivals, often involving choirs, where there is a central event involving multiple choirs or orchestras performing a common piece over key dates

  • Youth Music festivals that take place over a longer period of time, more like a concert series such as the one in Provence

  • OneStage Festivals - our in house festival series takes place in the Loire Valley France, Wallonia and a one-off unique event in Bonn 2020. These festivals are open to all types of ensembles and we welcome applications from youth and adult musicians. We have a separate website promoting our OneStage Festivals concerts

Why perform at a festival?

You can entice performers to tour with the lure of a festival name or the promise of being part of a bigger event. It gives extra kudos to your tour and it's something to tell your supporters back home. Performing as part of a festival raises the profile of your concerts and can assist in finding an audience to come to your concerts. 

What do we need to do to participate in a festival? 

To audition for any festival we require a comprehensive portfolio of your ensemble to include:

  • Video or audio recording
  • Photograph of your ensemble performing
  • Biography
  • Sample repertoire.  

The more we know about you the better placed we are to make applications on your behalf.
