Classical guitarists Jake Church and George Wills formed Duo Kitā in 2014. Supported by a Freemasons Lankhuyzen and Whetu-Kairangi Music Award, Duo Kitā completed their debut New Zealand tour in 2015 and quickly established themselves as an exciting chamber group. A passionate interest in a variety of music leads their programmes to explore music from European lute culture, to modern day composers who unashamedly push the boundaries of the classical guitar. Performance highlights include the Victoria University Alumni Awards Ceremony, Victoria University Legacy Club, St Andrews on the Terrace, and the Sarah Lilli Family Charity Concert 2015. Recently, Duo Kitā performed as finalists in the prestigious Pettman/Royal Overseas League Chamber Competition.

Jake and George are graduates of the New Zealand School of Music, where they studied with Dr. Jane Curry. In 2016, both Jake and George received the New Zealand Aspiring Guitarist Awards for the Taranaki Classical Guitar Summer School. After performing as featured concert as soloists, Duo Kitā closed the Summer School with a performance of Marek Pasieczny’s Polish Sketches. Jake and George wish to thank the Freemasons Hinemoa-Kairangi Benevolent Trust for generously supporting their 2016 NZ tour.
