Festivals

The annual Liszt Festival is the focal point of each year's American Liszt Society calendar of events. Historically, festivals have been held at a wide variety of locations in the United States and Canada. Festivals are typically hosted by a university, a library, a local ALS chapter, or a music performance organization. Those interested in hosting a festival should contact the President of ALS.

International festivals have been added to provide performance opportunities abroad for ALS members. Such festivals have been held in China, Budapest, Prague, Brazil, and Italy.

Upcoming Festival

  • "Liszt and the Orchestral Imagination," April 27 - 30, 2017 at the new lakeside home of the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, with Dr. James Giles, host. For more information, please go to 2017 American Liszt Society Festival.
