Recording Partner

Champs Hill Records

Champs Hill Records are delighted to partner with the Windsor Festival International String Competition. A central aim of Champs Hill's work is to support and nurture exceptional young talent, in addition to the more general promotion of the very best classical music; in supporting the work of WFISC we are able to achieve both these aims.

Up-and-coming artists on Champs Hill Records have seen notable success since the label's founding, with numerous critically acclaimed and award-winning releases. We look forward to working with the winners of WFISC on their recordings, and wish all the entrants the very best for the competition.
