    Ian Watt - classical guitar recital
    Ian Watt
    St Bride's Church, Hyndland Glasgow G12 9UX
    United Kingdom

    Born in Aberdeenshire, Scotland in 1991, Ian Watt first came to international attention when, at 18, he was awarded 2nd prize (silver medal) at the 2009 Parkening International Guitar Competition (USA), the world’s preeminent guitar competition. Since then, he has appeared as a soloist throughout Europe and world. To date, in addition to the UK, Watt has performed in the USA, China, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Ukraine, Denmark, Holland, Estonia, Norway and Belgium and as a concerto soloist with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, City of London Sinfonia and Scottish Philharmonic Orchestra. Despite his youth, Watt is also increasingly in demand as a teacher, regularly giving masterclasses internationally, most recently in China (at the Central Conservatory in Beijing), Germany, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

    Ian plays in the fine acoustic and atmospheric surrounding of St. Bride's Church in Glasgow's West End in support of the Restoration Fund for the historic Hill Organ. Originally installed in Anderston Church in 1865, it was the first pipe organ to be allowed in a Church of Scotland. In 1972, it was moved to St. Bride's by James MacKenzie, who will be overseeing the restoration.
