Building on the heritage of the Middle School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall, we are pleased to announce our 2019 middle school program at Royal Festival Hall at Southbank Centre in London, England!

2019 Middle School Honors Performance Series at Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre

July 2019 - Official Dates TBA

Further to our mission of offering elite and challenging opportunities for talented young performers, we are pleased to invite middle school musicians to apply to perform at one of Europe’s premier concert halls during Summer 2019.

Home of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Festival Hall at Southbank Centre is a stunning venue in the center of bustling downtown London. Selected students will come together in England for several days of rehearsals under master conductors, experiencing the culture and sights, and ultimately performing in this world-class concert hall.

Planned highlights include:

  • Perform in the elite Honors Junior Performance at Royal Festival Hall.
  • Work with master conductors and build your performing resume.
  • Rehearse and interact with other Junior Finalists from across the world.
  • Celebrate your accomplishments at your Junior Finalist Celebration.
  • Enjoy the sights and the culture of London.

Musicians in US grades 6-8 (or international equivalent) during the 2018-2019 school year will be eligible to apply beginning October 2018. All instruments and voice parts will be considered.

Official program and application
details will be shared here when the
application opens in October 2018.

I was overwhelmed by a shock of breathless delight at the originality and beauty of the interior. It felt as if I had been instantly transported far into the future and that I was on another planet.
