The Christchurch Guitar Society presents Australian guitarist Andrew Blanch playing music by Villa-Lobos, Augustin Barrios, Vicente Sojo, J.S. Bach, and Francisco Tarrega.

Andrew Blanch is a classical guitarist from Sydney, Australia. Andrew picked up his first guitar at the age of six and hasn’t put it down since. Now in his mid-twenties, Andrew plays concerts and in competitions around the world, “developing a reputation as one of the country's leading young classical guitarists.”

Andrew has won prizes at numerous competitions including, the Sydney Eisteddfod Open Classical Guitar Competition (1st), the Whitworth Roach Classical Music Competition (1st), the Friends of the School of Music Chamber Music Competition (1st), and most recently the Maurizio Biasini International Guitar Competition in San Francisco (3rd).

In December 2015, Andrew released his debut solo CD, Spanish Guitar Music, to critical acclaim: “Beautifully lyrical, awesome playing, pulsating with suppressed Spanish machismo, rich imaginings of some well-known (and slightly lesser known) Spanish pieces presented wonderfully”.

Andrew has a Bachelor of Music with first-class honours from the Australian National University studying under renowned guitarists Timothy Kain and Minh Le Hoang. He is currently a PhD candidate at the Australian National University researching classical guitar pedagogy. Andrew is currently based in Paris, studying with, and researching the teaching methods of renowned French guitarist Judicael Perroy.
