The British Isles Music Festival is a unique, residential chamber music and master class course, which celebrates the emergence of outstanding young musicians throughout the world. It unites young people through the common language of music and gives them the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience, learn from each other and learn from some of the top teachers and performers in the UK and Europe. During the festival they study in masterclass and individually with established professors, rehearse under supervision and perform major works in high level concerts to the general public and to their peers and professors. This is enormously beneficial to the many students who do not yet have the opportunity to work and perform on a more professional level. This experience is a much needed bridge between conservatory and professional life.
