The Investec International Music Festival brings world-class artists to perform in beautiful venues in the Surrey Hills, in early May each year.
Founded by Artistic Director Wu Qian and Festival Director Tessa Marchington in 2010, the Festival is growing and going from strength to strength.
Past artists have included Nicola Benedetti, Sarah Connolly (Festival Patron), Natalie Clein, Dmitry Sitkovetsky, The London Mozart Players, The English Concert and many other eminent international artists and conductors.
Our venues are small, beautiful and perfectly create a wonderful sense of closeness to the performers and to their music.
A brilliant spirit of friendship and enthusiasm exists amongst audience members at concerts. It almost feels like a family.
In fact, why go to Vienna, Paris, New York or even London when you can see international stars in the Surrey Hills? The Festival weekends offer wonderful walking and great opportunities for pre-concert dining either at the venue or in country pubs and restaurants.
IIMF is a registered charity and in addition to putting on concerts, the Committee commits to supporting and promoting music to school children through open rehearsals and special pricing for under 21’s. The Festival also provides a performance platform for top post-graduate students from a London Music Conservatoire.
We would like to thank Investec and all of our sponsors, Friends, volunteers, our Board of Trustees and of course you, the public, for helping us to continue to bring world-class music to the Surrey Hills area.
