Wellington Guitar Duo(The​ Te Rere​) in Concert……1012 East Coast Rd., 26th August

The Wellington Guitar Duo((The Te Rere)) was formed in 2016 by Emma Sandford and Joel Baldwin as part of the chamber music programme at the New Zealand School of Music. A like-minded focus and friendship has widened the scope of the duo to extend beyond the conservatory into a more professional sphere. They share a wide range of guitar duet literature of both historic and contemporary music and look to the future to expand the repertoire for the ensemble. Both members were taught by Auckland teacher, John Wakelin before being accepted into the classical guitar performance programme in 2014 under the tutelage of Dr. Jane Curry.
Emma is in the process of completing a major in composition in addition to her guitar studies. Inspired by her father, she began classical lessons at age 11 which soon became her passion. Emma’s interest in composition has led her to write for various ensembles and solo instruments, including the guitar. She is also interested in teaching and is a Suzuki method teacher in training. Emma received fourth place in the Biennial New Zealand Classical Guitar Competition in 2016.
Joel is a software engineer turned classical guitarist. Though his focus is on music of the 17th and 18th centuries, he is also at home interpreting works of the 20th century. He gave his solo debut as part of the Jack Richards concert series in Gisborne, 2016 and received third place in the Biennial New Zealand Classical Guitar Competition in 2016.
