Saturday 12th March to Saturday 19th March 2022

Thank you to all who took part in the 2021 Glasgow Music Festival.

The next Festival – the 110th – will feature some 7,000 performers from across Scotland and other parts of the United Kingdom. The programme of events covers speech, drama, dance and music. Bands, orchestras, ensembles and choirs, in addition to hundreds of soloists, will perform in public and be appraised by a team of leading professional adjudicators.

Look out for new classes where younger singers can try out the new ‘Share a Song’ classes and, for all musicians, we have introduced a Composer’s Anniversary Class enabling performers to celebrate a composer for whom the year in which the performance is given marks a 50th, 100th, 150th, etc anniversary of either birth or death.

Every group or soloist taking part in the Festival will receive a Certificate of Performance. In addition, performers may elect to receive marks and may qualify for special certificates, bursaries or awards.
