IGF’s Young Artist Platform has selected these wonderful young artists at auditions in September 2019. They will perform throughout 2020 and 2021 at all IGF events, attend workshops in a range of subjects and receive mentoring.

IGF also especially commissions a new work by a leading composer for them to workshop and premiere at a major UK venue.

Their first concert for IGF was at London Guitar Festival 2019 on 26 Oct, at Kings Place.
