Virtual Lunchtime Concert: Meredith Connie (Classical Guitar)

Premieres: Saturday 14th November at 2pm.

Welcome to our ‘virtual’ lunchtime concert! We stream a concert every month on a Saturday afternoon for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home.

TODAY’S CONCERT

Meredith Connie, Classical Guitar
An Historical tour of the Guitar: starting at the Renaissance and finishing in the 21st century, this short tour of the guitar will feature works that have been inspired by the Melbourne lockdown, both because of the thematic material of the works and because of my own personal research during this period. The program includes some fantastic works by historical women composers for the guitar. Composers featured are: John Dowland, Guiseppe Brescianello, Sidney Patten, Emilia Guiliani, Meredith Connie and Bartolome Calatuyud.
