Through the generosity of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra Foundation and the NZSO, the New Zealand School of Music is able to host a masterclass featuring Xuefei Fang. The Chinese guitar virtuoso is currently performing Rodrigo's 'Concierto de Aranjuez' with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra in their 'Sketches of Spain' touring programme.

Xuefei Fang is the first guitarist of international stature to emerge from China’s classical music “boom”. Born following the Cultural Revolution, an era where Western music & instruments were banned, the fascinating story of Fei’s rise to the world stage, is that of a musical pioneer. She was the first ever guitarist in China to enter a music school, and became the first to launch an international professional career.

NZSM guitar students will take part in this masterclass, but observers and audience are welcome to attend.

She was the first ever guitarist in China to enter a music school, and became the first to launch an international professional career.

Her first public appearance at the age of ten, at the China International Guitar Festival, received such acclaim that the Spanish Ambassador in China immediately presented her with a concert guitar. The composer Rodrigo attended her debut concert in Madrid when she was fourteen and in 1995, when John Williams came to Beijing, he was so impressed with her playing that he gave two of his own Smallman guitars to her Conservatory especially for Fei and other top students to play.

NZSM guitar students will take part in this masterclass, but observers and audience are welcome to attend. Free admission. Held in the Adam Concert Room, Kelburn Campus.
