The Guitar in Dance and Dream
Music Direction by: Jonathan Paget
Performed by: Classical Guitar students, with special guest artists Silver Sands Guitar Trio
The guitar has always belonged to the people; across its history of many centuries the guitar has continued to occupy the space between both popular and elite.
Much of its music is rooted in popular song and dance, but developed by its exponents with unusual artistry. A soft instrument, it cajoles us within its intimate tones,
drawing us into its own interior dream world with its “six silver moonbeams.”
Venue: Music Auditorium, WA Academy of Performing Arts (2 Bradford St Mt Lawley)
Tickets: $28 full; $23 conc/friends; Phone (08) 9370 6895 or purchase tickets online.
