Australia, Brazil, China & South Africa
From South Africa’s extraordinary Derek Gripper in his only festival appearance, to the life affirming groove of Chrystian Dozza from Brazil and the remarkable collaborative quartet between Australia’s Grigoryan Brothers and China’s Beijing Guitar Duo our festival finale is an epic gathering of strummers and pluckers from four continents.
Bookended by ensembles made of tomorrow’s stars, the Elder Conservatorium Guitar Ensemble (mentored by Martha Masters with the support of the Helpmann Academy), Aurora Guitar Ensemble and the Adelaide Guitar Festival Orchestra under the direction of the mercurial Dr Paul Svoboda. This is a finale unparalleled in its variety of style and calibre of artists.
The Adelaide Guitar Festival Orchestra provides a unique performance opportunity for seasoned classical guitarists. For information on how to take part and perform, please contact Assistant Producer, Dearna Newchurch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Places are limited.
