Meet QCGU’s Guitar Heroes…Posted: September 19, 2016
How many strings does a classical guitar have? Come along to our Queensland College of Art Music in the Library performance and find out!
That’s right, it’s time for another Music in the Library performance from the super talented kids over at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University (QCGU). Today we’ve got not one, not two but eight classical guitar musicians joining us at South Bank’s QCA library.
Today’s performers have had the pleasure of learning from one of the best – Karin Schaupp. Karin is a Griffith lecturer but she’s also a seasoned performer and the most outstanding guitarists on the international scene. She performs widely on the international stage as a recitalist, concerto soloist and festival guest, and has given countless recitals in Australia, Europe, Asia, the US, Mexico and Canada.
So safe to say her QCGU students will also be crazy talented! Come along at 1pm and hear some tunes live in your library. After all, science says music helps you study!
The 2016 Music in the Library Series is an exciting innovation that aims to enliven the campus Library spaces and give QCGU students a chance to build valuable performance experience.
Got a lecture and can’t make it? Don’t worry we’ve got more Library performances on the way. You’ll have plenty more chances to enjoy the music across Semester 2 as students from the Queensland Conservatorium-Griffith University (QCGU) will visit each campus to showcase their talents.
P.S. a classical guitar has 12 strings!
