Welcome to The Amersham Festival of Music website. For more than thirty years, the Amersham Festival of Music has been one of the top annual music events in South Bucks. 

 

The festival has grown steadily in that time and now runs for 3 or more weeks each spring and also includes a winter season of concerts featuring our own Festival Orchestra.  

Our aim in starting the Festival was to promote music-making of the highest professional quality in the local area, using some of the very attractive local venues available to us.

 

Works are performed both by our own Festival Orchestra and also by a wide variety of visiting guest performers including both professional musicians and talented amateurs.

 

Previous concerts have included everything from Vivaldi to Verdi and Elgar to Ellington in a wide range of musical styles including:-

 

  • Baroque

  • Jazz

  • Major choral works

  • Chamber concerts

  • Opera

  • Classical

 

The festival also includes a substantial educational element offering a bursary scheme for local aspiring young musicians. We also hold Masterclasses and Study Days with top musicians.
