Semi-finals day two will feature the remaining five of our twelve semi-finalists. Follow the action as the most talented young string players from across the globe compete to reach the Final of WFISC 2019.
Each semi-final ticket is valid for a full day of semi-final recitals at The Old Court, Windsor’s community arts space. Come and go as you wish between performances or drop in for just a few; the bar, managed by Windsor & Eton Brewery, will be open throughout.
