Adelaide Guitar Festival Orchestra

15 - 19 July

In 2024 we celebrate ten years of our Adelaide Guitar Festival Orchestra, rehearsing in the July school holidays, then returning for a special 10th anniversary concert during the festival in September.

Adelaide Guitar Festival Orchestra focuses on nylon string and classical techniques, ensemble playing, and music reading development. Led by Paul Svoboda, participants will rehearse in three sections which will come together for a full orchestral performance. The program is open to players of all ages but must be able to play at the equivalent of AMEB Grade 3 level or higher and have a good understanding of the fingerboard.
