The International Guitar Foundation (IGF) is a charitable organisation dedicated to the guitar, its players, and its music. We focus primarily upon:
– creating new music
– advancing the opportunities available for new players
– developing audiences for guitar music, throughout the UK
We create a high quality repertoire for guitar by commissioning new work from leading music creators, from a wide variety of musical backgrounds. We disseminate this new work to audiences via performances, workshops, recording projects and internet-based distribution. This mixture of approaches is designed to allow us to develop and sustain the widest possible audience.
We create opportunities for young players by providing performance platforms, workshops, professional advice and the highest quality training available. We also involve young guitarists in the creation and performance of our new commissioned music.
