The Summa Cum Laude Festival in 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) under the auspices of the newly elected President of the Republic of Austria, Alexander Van der Bellen, and under the patronage of the Austrian Commission for UNESCO in 2017.

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. The true focus of the Festival is to create an environment where young musicians from all over the world can interact on an international level and build bridges amongst themselves.
