International Music Festival of Valencia

The International Music Festival of Valencia is a cultural and an educational project that offers concerts, music courses, workshops, conferences and masterclasses for a large variety of instruments. The festival brings to Valencia teachers from the world best known musical institutions and concert soloist from the best orchestras in the world. This festival greatly enriches the musical scene of the Valencia Region.


Music courses

The main goal of this project is to improve the musical education of our young students, bringing the best teachers to share with them their knowledge and experiences. The courses are focused mainly on the musicians of Valencia but are open for all who are interested in participating.


Another important goal of this Festival is to invest in quality musical culture. We will have some of the best teachers and musicians, who will perform in concerts where all of our students will also take part.

Extra activities

We will offer workshops, conferences, masterclasses and more, for all students who want to improve their musical abilities with the help of correct breathing methods, relaxation exercises, musical psychology, physiotherapy and more.


The program includes a string orchestra, a symphony orchestra, wind ensembles, a brass band and chamber music groups. The students of FIMValencia will perform as part of these musical groups at the closing concert on the 6th of July. They will participate in daily rehearsals to develop and improve their group playing skills.


We will also offer other activities such as displays by musical shops, where the students will be able to check and test instruments and buy different products for the instrument, during the week of the festival.

Direction of FIMValencia


The International Music Festival of Valencia was founded in 2017 and since that year we brought to Valencia 19 international teachers and artists from 7 different countries and had more than 120 students.


Since 2008, with the help of several music associations among them the "La Unió Musical de Catarroja" and the "La Lira Almussafense", we have organized festivals, concerts, courses and masterclasses, while developing and improving our organizational skills.


Thanks to the support of these associations, we are able to organize our events with the participation of such highly professional artists and teachers.
