Guitarathon 2022

Guitarathon 2022

Classical guitar students from the University of Adelaide's Elder Conservatorium of Music will present a day of free performances in Elder Hall, starting at 4 pm Sunday 6 November. Under the direction of senior lecturer Dr Oliver Fartach-Naini, undergraduate and postgraduate students will perform an eclectic program of solo and chamber music.

Now in its fifth year, Guitarathon is a six-hour concert packed with gems of the classical guitar’s rich repertoire. “This is an outreach and music initiation project as much as it is a celebration of Adelaide’s thriving classical guitar community.”

The stylistically diverse program includes works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Mauro Giuliani, Francisco Tarrega, Carlo Domeniconi, Philip Houghton, Enrique Granados, Máximo Diego Pujol, Alan Thomas, Richard Charlton, Nikita Koshkin, Paulo Bellinati, James Rawley, Gary Ryan, Anne Cawrse and many more.

Performers include guitarists Connor Whyte, Emanuel Auciello, Caleb Lavery-Brook, James Rawley, Yueqi Li, Alexandra Shepherd, Alyssa Verbart, Megan Robson, James Logan as well as pianist Shawn Hui.
