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

The original date of the 2020 festival has been changed. Due to the coronavirus, the 2020 festival has been postponed until 2021. The new dates are May 12 - 15, 2021. The festival will still be held on the campus of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, and the theme will be "Liszt and Hungary." Matthew Bengston will serve as festival chairperson. Please return to this website for updates. Thank you.
