New Strad Event for Young Players

The Strad is presenting its first ever all-day festival. Aimed at string players looking to advance their careers, this day-long extravaganza aims to give you all you need to know about making it as a professional player, culminating in a full recital by a top soloist (to be announced). Taking place in London next February, this will be an essential – and fun – day for you and your friends.
