The triennial Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition provides a vital public platform from which young musicians can break into the world of professional performance at the highest level.

We welcome donations at any level and are looking for three-year commitments. You can become an Ambassador at any time - your donations will go into the fund for the next Competition (2015, 2018, 2021 and so on).
