What is ICF-Danville?

Like the original, ICF-Kiev, ICF-Danville is, at its core, a two-week teacher-less conducting masterclass.  Guest conductors from around the country and around the world will lead the Piccadilly Symphony Orchestra and share ideas in a colloquium environment. ICF-Danville is also a community music festival with both formal and informal events for adults and children.  Click here for a full events list.

When is ICF-Danville?

The festival runs July 18-30, 2016. Click here for a full events list.

What music will I hear at ICF-Danville?

Each week of the festival, conductors play musical chairs. The same repertoire will be played on both Friday and Saturday night, but with different conductors from night to night. Come to both concerts and hear what difference a conductor really makes.
