Artistic Director / Cyfarwyddwr Artistig David Campbell
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’.
The daily evening and lunchtime festival concerts, together with foyer performances and impressive student showcase concerts at the end of the week are powerful reminders of the rejuvenating effect of listening to live music of such a high calibre.
The Summer School is unique in offering organised, structured chamber music opportunities and coaching. Courses on offer this year include chamber music (string quartets, wind ensembles and mixed instrumentation), clarinet, saxophone, voice, harp, violin, viola, cello, composition, composition, conducting and Refresh and Inspire with Practical Psychology. For one week everyone lives, breathes and dreams music!
Concert highlights for 2013 include: Guy Johnson (cello), Tom Poster (piano), David Campbell (clarinet), The Tiddly Prom (for younger audiences), National Youth Brass Band of Wales, Orion Symphony Orchestra and more!
