CMF Artists

The City Music Foundation (CMF) is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a gala concert at Wigmore Hall on 5 July 2022. Performers at the concert include CMF Alumni, violinist Emily Sun, mezzo-soprano Helen Charlston, pianist Samson Tsoy (performing with his duo partner Pavel Kolesnikov), and violinist Michael Foyle, performing with the Trio Balthasar which includes Iain Burnside (CMF Patron) and Tim McHugh. Other distinguished performers will include bass-baritone Christopher Purves, trumpeter David Blackadder and violinist Jennifer Pike (CMF Patron).

Music include Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring (in the version for piano four-hands), Mendelssohn's Piano Trio No. 2, Bach's Double Violin Concerto and arias from Handel's Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne.

The City Music Foundation was co-founded by the late Sir Roger Gifford (1955-2021), who was the 685th Lord Mayor of London and was installed as Master of the Musician's Company in 2016. The CMF selects exceptional professional musicians at the start of their careers, when managing ‘the business of music’ can be a challenge, and supports them with a comprehensive career development programme.
