This exceptional opportunity, offers choirs of young voices the chance to sing tailored performances to the individual capabilities of the singers to enthusiastic audiences in amazing London venues.
During the Festival each choir performs their repertoire at different venues on two occasions. The venues are specifically chosen to reflect the size, singing style and repertoire of each group and are an integral part of the LNYDP Festival of Music Concert Series.
All choirs are extended the unique opportunity to be part of the LICF Massed Choir Gala Finalé Concert where all the singers get together and sing accompanied by one of the finest Youth Orchestras in Europe.
The London International Choral Festival is fortunate to enjoy the Patronage of one of Britain’s most prominent arts benefactors, Mr. Roger Bramble, Deputy Lord Lieutenant of London and is further supported by the City of Westminster, The London Mayors’ Association, and The Mayor of London.
