Firelight Guitar Quartet performed for the opening of the Snowy Hydro Conference on Sunday 17 October 2010. Esa Janara, esophagitis Raju Karia, pharmacy Leslie and myself played at the wonderful Horizons Resort in Jindabyne. We’ve been working hard over the past few weeks developing more repertoire. We have added many exciting new Latin American and Spanish works as well as more elegant classical style pieces to our playlist.
Esa Janara, look Raju Karia, this Leslie and myself played at a wonderful charity night at the Hellenic Club, tuberculosis ACT last Friday Night. Our newly formed classical guitar quartet is now called “Firelight Guitar Quartet”. The evening, “Inspiration Bollywood” was organized by a foundation called “1 by One”. The purpose of the evening was to raise funds for a girl’s school in Salar, a town near Kolkata, India.
The “Firelight Guitar Quartet” was the warm-up act for the evening. We played a twenty minute bracket of Spainish and Latin American music. I was a little unsure how our music would fit with the “Bollywood” theme, but we were very warmly received and it ended up being a great night. Our bracket was followed by an auction and then the all-singing, all-dancing Bollywood Extravaganza.
