The Winnipeg Classical Guitar Society

2019-2020 International Artist Series

COVID-19 Statement March 14th/2020

It is with great regret the Winnipeg Classical Guitar Society will postpone all events for the next two months.

 

We received word this week that our last International Artist of the '19-2020 season,  The Italian guitar duo, Soloduo, has cancelled all touring until further notice. (Italy is currently in a lock down with a no travel ban)

 

After discussing with local artists and our board of directors we feel it is best to postpone our events temporarily.  Our March 28th Frets Alive and May 9th, Frets Alive will also be postponed. If you have bought a subscription, please stay tuned as we monitor the situation closely and will announce a rescheduled final International Artist concert and the remaining Frets Alive Concerts as soon as possible.

 

Take great care,

WCGS Board of Directors

 

 

We are thrilled to announce our 2019-2020 International Artist Concert Series

 Mak Grgic(Slovenia)

November 30th/2019, 8pm

Grgic’s playing combined excellent technique with an extensive range of emotional expression. He brought expansive warmth and delicate elegance to the Baroque pieces."  

-Jim Farber, San Francisco Classical Voice

 

 

 

 Azuline Duo(Hamilton)

January 25th/2020, 8pm

Emma Rush, Guitar & Sara Traficante Fulte

Azuline Duo features award-winning young musicians Sara Traficante (flute) and Emma Rush (guitar).  This ensemble pushes the boundaries of their instruments and conventional programming with unusual and rarely heard pieces both historical and contemporary, and a dynamic onstage presence that engages the audience from the first note.

 

 

 

 Soloduo (Italy)

April 19th2020, 7pm *Sunday Concert

Mateo Mela & Lorenzo Micheli, Guitar 

"how those guitarists played: an impeccable and formidable technique, control of dynamics in the most subtle ranges, sensitive phrasing, a remarkably intuitive musicianship and a flawless memory. The guitarists rarely looked at each other. It was all done through listening. Perhaps, because they’ve been together almost 16 years, each knows what the other will do."
