New Zealand Guitar Ensemble


New Zealand Guitar Ensemble is a Classical Guitar Ensemble Group currently consisting of Korean boys, girls and adults who live in New Zealand. We started in 1998 as a part of The Southern Cross Korean Performing Arts Group and had several performances in places such as Auckland Town Hall, Aotea Centre, Churches, Rest Homes and Auckland Guitar society. We have also won first prize three times in the ‘Ensemble division’ competitions held by Auckland Guitar Society. In May 2005 we separated from The Southern Cross Korean Performing Arts Group and we aim to have our own performances once or twice each year.
