London International Choral Festival


The London International Choral Festival presents superb opportunities for young singers from overseas to come to London with their choirs and perform in some magnificent venues under the guidance and tutelage of some of Britain’s most celebrated vocal teachers and conductors.

During the Festival each choir performs a concert of their repertoire at a venue specifically chosen to reflect the size, singing style and repertoire of each group.

The focal point of the week long New Year’s Festival is the Grande Finale Gala Concert where all of the Festival’s Choirs come together with the LICF Choir Director, James Henshaw, to perform a specially chosen repertoire in the magnificent St. John’s Smith Square, accompanied by Britain’s finest youth orchestra, the Young Musicians Symphony Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of James Blair MBE.

This truly glittering occasion is attended by all of the Mayors and civic dignitaries of London. Youth Music of the World has a brilliant and exclusive performance tour programme to enable participation in this event.
