We regret to inform you that due to unforeseen changes in COVID-19 regulations by the airline, Ana Vidovic has not been able to fly to London in time for this concert. We are most grateful to the wonderful Cristina Galietto for agreeing to take over the concert. Ana Vidovic was the winner of IGF’s first guitar competition back in 1995, her first international guitar competition, which launched her international career. It is fitting that she should be replaced by another brilliant young woman in Cristina Galietto who is no doubt destined for a similar brilliant career.
Join us for an unmissable evening featuring the Final of the London International Guitar Competition, 2020 winner, Kevin Loh, and Cristina Galietto.
