Andrew Blanch in Recital
A Prelude in Tea Concert
Wenona School and the Independent Theatre are committed to ensuring the safety of patrons and staff, and have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Following the government’s directive to restrict public gatherings to minimise risk and prevent unnecessary exposure to the community, the difficult decision has been made by the School to cancel all events up to and including Friday 25 September, 2020.
The School is also concerned for the wellbeing and long term viability of our vibrant arts community. We are especially mindful of the situation now faced by small organisations and freelance artists who do not have access to resources or contingency plans. In light of which, all ticketholders are offered the option of either receiving a full refund, or donating their ticket price to support the artists through this difficult period in the performing arts sector.
We will continue to work alongside the event organisers to reschedule these performances and notify patrons of new information once this critical period has passed. Details will also be posted on the Independent Theatre website as they come to hand.
We greatly appreciate your understanding and support through this challenging period.
Single tickets: Adult $49, Concession $32, Student $22, Child $17
Subscriptions from $87 Concession and $132 Adult.
Andrew Blanch is recognised as one of Australia’s leading and most active young classical guitarists. He made his solo recital debut at the Sydney Opera House in 2017 to critical-acclaim, and to date his career has taken him around the world. His debut CD, Spanish Guitar Music, has proven popular with listeners and critics alike, with glowing reviews and regular airtime on ABC Classic FM. In addition to his solo work, Andrew performs around the country and internationally in long-standing collaborations with his duo partner, Ariel Nurhadi, and in The José Carbó Trio, featuring the renowned Argentinian-Australian baritone. In addition to these groups, Andrew has collaborated in many chamber music performances with musicians such as mezzo-soprano Deborah Humble, tenor Diego Torre, flautists Vernon Hill and Virginia Taylor, and Josephine and Sandro Consantino (founding members of the New Zealand String Quartet).
