Part of running an international music festival in London is the excitement in welcoming ensembles of all backgrounds to our dazzling, historic, world-renowned city!
Over the years we’ve welcomed ensembles from all corners of the globe representing all ensemble types: wind orchestras, choral ensembles of all sizes, chamber orchestras, concert bands, string orchestras, dance troupes, percussion ensembles, stage bands, marching bands, jazz bands and more!
Over the past 12 months, via our social media channels, we’ve especially enjoyed following so many local ensembles who, despite the challenges of physical distancing and government restrictions, have managed to create some incredible performances; and they’ve been generous to share them with us all. Sharing their love of music to help us all get through the challenges of 2020 in particular has been truly inspiring. We’ve seen youth choirs, foreign-language choirs, African percussion ensembles, amateur orchestras with professionals from a particular business community, school music programs, community choirs, orchestras of all sizes, and the list goes on. It’s not just London and the Greater London area either; there are so many talented UK ensembles we’ve enjoyed following.
International festivals do not preclude local ensembles from participating. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. It’s their time to shine too! Our international visitors love meeting the locals and with the social interaction during the London International Music Festival, that’s something we pride ourselves on. International ensembles meeting like-minded and equally talented local ensembles at the Opening ceremony is a priceless experience. Friendships form and dialogue flows freely even if different languages are spoken. Performing together for our massed ensemble performance adds another level again.
There is so much talent in our local UK universe and we want to share it with the world, in London. If you're a local ensemble and would like to join us in #LIMFmusicfest then get in touch. We’d love to have you!
