For over 70 years, young musicians, celebrated virtuosos and passionate amateurs have come together to learn from each other, create and perform new work, interpret gems from the classical, folk, jazz, and modern repertoires, as soloists, in ensembles, in choirs and orchestras, firing new works and artistic partnerships which resonate far beyond the Festival.

The Friends lie at the heart of this alchemy.
