The International Concert Series (ICS) is at the heart of our classical music programme here at St David’s Hall. We have an array of “ICS: Extras” to accompany the series including extra concerts, a Young Composers’ Scheme, a variety of pre-concert talks, a schools’ programme and a selection of ‘Pay What You Will’ contemporary lunchtime concerts. Visit www.stdavidshallcardiff.co.uk/whats-on/international-concert-series to keep up-to-date with what’s on offer. The ICS: Extras initiative has been made possible through the support of The National Lottery.

Lefel 1 is the exciting new studio space we are developing in the former restaurant area. In addition to being a space to present music performances by, for and  with young people, it’s a great space for more informal activity including our ICS: Extras events.

FREE before the main ICS concert at 6:30pm. We’ve a variety of talks and presentations taking place pre-concert to give you further insight into the evening’s performance. Perfect if you are unfamiliar with some of the programme but highly informative even if they are cherished favourites.

Talented young performers who live or study in Cardiff will have the opportunity to give their own short recitals and concerts throughout the year inspired and influenced by the concerts in the ICS.

Our ICS: Soundbites offers a 30 minute FREE EVENT of live musical performance in our Lefel 1 studio featuring content to tie in with the main concert series. They are performed by some of our favourite local musicians and also offers a chance to engage in musical discussion in a relaxed, friendly environment.

Once a month we’ll be holding a workshop clinic for young composersin South Wales. They’ll have the opportunity to get advice and feedback from experienced composers and hear their music tried out by professional players. There’ll be opportunities for some of the work created by members of the group to be presented as part of our young artists’ showcase.

A series of lunchtime concerts, featuring a programme of the finest contemporary music performed by
internationally acclaimed artists and ensembles. A Pay What You Will initiative, this offers a chance to sample the diverse array of high-quality new classical music.
