GFA is proud to announce our newest staff member, British guitarist Helen Sanderson of the internationally renowned Vida Guitar Quartet. Helen joins GFA as an experienced touring artist particularly skilled in administration. She will spearhead the addition of a UK Tour to the GFA International Concert Artist Competition’s prestigious tour prize.
Currently, the winner’s tour includes concerts throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, South America, and China along with a recital at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall sponsored by the D’Addario and Company in conjunction with the D'Addario Music Foundation. Beginning with the winner of the 2013 competition, the ICAC tour prize will also include a concert at the Sarajevo International Guitar Festival. GFA looks forward to expanding the ICAC tour prize and giving our winners exposure before European audiences.
