Music for Youth Festival

The National Festival of Music for Youth is the largest event of its kind in the world. 10,000 young musicians and singers perform 800 different works at this six-day celebration of young people's music making. Every style of music is represented and the young music makers come from every corner of the UK.

Taking place from 6-12 July in Birmingham at the Symphony Hall, Birmingham Town Hall, Birmingham Conservatoire and The REP, the festival promises to be great entertainment. And if it didn't have enough kudos already, broadcaster Howard Goodall said:

"To anyone who has never witnessed it before, the annual National Festival of Music for Youth can come as a shock - it's that good! It is without doubt one of the wonders of our age."

If you can't wait until July, you can catch the end of the Music For Youth Regional Festival series. It takes place every year, and this spring the 2009 series boasts 65 festivals nation-wide, giving 45,000 young musicians the opportunity to play in front of a live audience.
