8 Apr 2018, 5:30 PM - 6:00 PM
The Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) Guitar Orchestra (Secondary and IB groups) is made up of students aged 14–18 years old. These dedicated young musicians develop their musicianship through regular weekly rehearsals in which they focus on both technical and ensemble skills.
The ensemble will perform on orchestral guitars which are commonly known as niibori, designed and first performed in Japan under the direction of Dr Hiroki Niibori. In the course of the performance, the ensemble will explain and demonstrate the sounds and roles of these guitars in the various sections. In addition, they will also describe special musical features inherent in the various pieces.
This performance will include a wide spectrum of musical genres spanning classical works, anime music and contemporary popular music.
