Guitar in London 

International Guitar Foundation (IGF) established its Guitar in London series concerts in 2019 to feature IGF Young Artist Platform performers premièring IGF’s newly commissioned repertoire, in shared concerts with established guitarists, including artists making UK debuts. During these difficult Covid-restricted times, IGF has focused on supporting its Young Artist Platform (YAP) recipients, both its past and present, offering them shared concerts. This Sunday afternoon series also wants to encourage young people to listen to live music and offers free tickets to under-18 year olds.

The next three concerts will be at Kings Place, London on:
Sunday 9 January 2022, 3pm
Sunday 30 January 2022, at 3pm
Sunday 27 March 2022, at 3pm

Sunday 9 January 2022, St Pancras Room, Kings Place, 3pm
