Who is Leeds International Concert Season?
Leeds International Concert Season is run by Leeds City Council and is the largest local authority music programme in the UK. We programme more than 200 concerts a year in the Leeds area.
Our annual programme
The highlight of each season is the International Orchestral Season, which sees national and international orchestras visit Leeds Town Hall on Saturday nights.
The season also includes Leeds Best of Brass – the UK’s finest brass band series at Morley Town Hall, an international chamber music season at The Venue, Leeds Conservatoire, plus gala concerts with ensembles such as the City of Leeds Youth Orchestra.
A unique series of sixty lunchtime chamber and organ recitals offers the most extensive programme of free music in Britain. Music moves outside in the summer for Summer Bands in Leeds Parks.
Festivals and competitions
We organise the Leeds Conductors Competition which supports young British conductors, and Leeds Pub Piano Competition which runs triennially alongside the Leeds International Piano Competition.
