Join us for a celebration of the beauty, passion, and romance of the Parisian guitar. From 16th century counterpoint through to post-modern guitar bards such as Dyens and Kleynjans, the French have had a long lover affair with the guitar. Enjoy musical gems from this rich body of work performed by the classical guitar students and Plectra Guitiar Ensemble, with a highlight performance by WAAPA’s classical guitar expert Jonathan Paget of Ferdinando Carulli’s Petit Concerto de Société on a period instrument, accompanied by the Indian Ocean Ensemble.
