Clas­si­cal gig top pick

The Advocate (Perth) - - AN­ZAC DAY 2017 - Lisa Thomas

EL­LEN­BROOK Arts Gallery will show­case the work of clas­si­cal guitarist Don Ne­an­der in an in­ti­mate gig this Fri­day.

The mu­si­cian will play mu­sic from his tra­di­tional clas­si­cal gui­tar reper­toire with works by Bach, Sor, Al­b­eniz, Bar­rios, Brouwer, Ponce, Sojo and oth­ers.

Ne­an­der started play­ing clas­si­cal gui­tar as a child be­fore mov­ing into blues as an adult and play­ing in bands across Perth and work­ing as a mu­sic teacher.

He said he had re­cently re­turned to his first love of clas­si­cal gui­tar and started play­ing con­certs.

“I’ve had re­ally great feed­back from the gigs, es­pe­cially with younger kids en­joy­ing clas­si­cal gui­tar and start­ing to play; it seems to be mak­ing a come­back,” he said.

“The gallery has won­der­ful acous­tics which will en­hance the sounds. If you want to hear clas­si­cal gui­tar acous­ti­cally in a good en­vi­ron­ment, then this will be a great gig to come along to.

“There will also be an ex­hi­bi­tion of bush­land scenes from a lo­cal pri­mary school, which peo­ple can en­joy.”

The recital starts at 7.30pm on Fri­day. Tick­ets are avail­able at the door from $15 for adults and $10 for con­ces­sion and El­len­brook Arts Gallery mem­bers. Call 9297 9940.
