The guitar has long been an instrument that transcends social, cultural, and genre divides. In this guitar celebration Jazz and Classical students join forces to showcase the diversity of guitar-playing skill at WAAPA. Particular attention is given to fusion genres, including Brazilian guitar greats that join the dots between jazz and classical traditions, as well as more recent artists such as Pat Metheny in his signature track “Heat of the Day.”
The concert also features cameo performances from inspirational Brisbane-based guitarist Anthony Garcia. Fusing the ancient with the contemporary, Latin folk with exploratory jazz, pulsating world rhythms and Asiatic soundscapes, Garcia’s music, continues to take audiences through uncharted waters.
