Farnham Competitive Music Festival

Welcome to the website of the Farnham Competitive Music Festival, held at Frensham Heights School, Rowledge, Farnham. We also have a Facebook page with photos and news which is updated regularly


2016 Festival 

Our Festival classes in 2016 will be held on the weekends of the 12th/13th and 19th/20th November. The Festival Concert will be on Sunday 11th December.

We strive to provide classes and awards which are of real value to musicians at all stages of development.

  • For younger entrants, the Play2 class is aimed at providing a transition before they are ready to give a full recital programme.
  • For the more advanced player, the piano section Performers' Platform is the ideal preparation for exams and auditions.
  • We are delighted to announce that 2016 will be the sixth year of the June Fielding Bursary - value up to £500 
  • For information about the Farnham Young Musician Awards and other awards click here

Strings: Lorraine Deacon. Sunday 13th November (and Saturday 12th if required)
