Lake District Summer Music

Lake District Summer Music

Lake District Summer Music believes in the power of music to inspire and to change lives.

The organisation adds a distinct and compelling musical focus to the rich cultural heritage of Cumbria. It plays a major role in the provision of music to be enjoyed and engaged with by local communities in South Lakeland and sought by musicians and music-lovers, young and old, around the world.

Lake District Summer Music hosts annual festivals which present diverse and varied programmes performed by international musicians and ensembles. Artists perform against the backdrop of the area’s unique and historic landscape, both outdoors and in the special atmosphere of the historic churches and halls found in the area's towns and villages.

Integrated with these festivals, Lake District Summer Music’s educational projects nurture young, talented musicians, enabling the organisation to retain its founding vision: to provide high quality training and public performance opportunities which are vital to young musicians and not normally accessible through educational institutions.
