Event description

"Serenade to Samba: The Soulful Melodies of Spain and Latin America" promises an enchanting evening with Andrew Blanch, whose passion for Spanish and Latin American repertoire resonates deeply with audiences. At just 32, this Australian classical guitar virtuoso stands at the forefront of the nation's classical scene, captivating listeners with his spellbinding performances. Blanch's extensive concert schedule regularly features sold-out, critically acclaimed shows at prestigious venues like Victoria’s Melbourne Recital Centre and South Australia’s Ukaria.

His performances at the iconic Sydney Opera House have repeatedly earned high praise, including a five-star review from Sydney Arts Guide that applauds his choice of broadly appealing music and lauds his style, class, and exceptional delivery.

“Five stars for a unique offering. Five stars for setting aside angular, dissonant music for the sake of being “modern” and instead choosing music with wide appeal. Five stars for outstanding performance. Five stars for all the Australian commissioned works. Five stars for style and class.”

Join us for a night where the lyrical serenades of Spain seamlessly interweave with the vibrant samba rhythms of Latin America, showcasing Andrew Blanch's unique ability to blend technical brilliance with heartfelt emotion.
