Summa Cum Laude International Festival

Summa Cum Laude Festival

July 4-10, 2019 | VIENNA, AUSTRIA

The first Summa Cum Laude International Youth Music Festival was hosted in July 2007. Already during its first year, it realized its two main objectives: to provide a unique platform for the world’s most talented youth choirs, bands and orchestras to perform in Vienna’s magnificent Musikverein and to set new standards in the festival arena. The SCL Festival has gained the broad support of the Austrian public and of many national and international decision makers in the field of politics and culture. Close ties have also been established to foreign embassies and international organization to make this a truly international event. Performing groups may compete with their peers in the “Summa Cum Laude Competition” or they may opt to participate in the non-competitive “Summa Cum Laude Celebration.”
