The SCL Festival Vienna is Austria’s premier global youth music festival for choirs, bands and orchestras.

Taking place every July in Vienna’s two main classical concert venues, the Golden Hall of the Musikverein and the Konzerthaus, it offers an international environment where a thousand young musicians enjoy intercultural exchanges and build bridges that span continents.

Ensembles may participate either in the Competition or in the Celebration (non-competitive).

Top professionals form the international juries in the Competition and teach our Academy program at the Vienna University of Music.

Enjoy interactive workshops and educational lectures, additional concerts with local audiences, and pre-and post-concert tours in Europe.
