In Winter the Witten-Hannah’s made a concert tour together across the South Island from Invercargill to Wanaka, to Tekapo and finally Christchurch hosted by family’s learning guitar by the Suzuki method with South Island teacher George Hendry.

Sasha and Natarani met soon after completing their studies in performance music and have been playing  together as ‘Heartstrings’ ever since. They are successfully balancing family life with careers both performing and teaching their musical instruments – Guitar and Cello. They have been married for 15 years and now their two children have joined them in concert for the first time this year. Sofia 11 years old on violin/guitar and The 9 years old on cello.

Sasha’s most advanced guitar student Reuben Chung will also play a piece this Sunday.

As the children can’t stay up late the guitar society members performance will be afterwards.


The concert will include:

Pachelbel’s Canon in D – The whole family

Humoresque by Dvorak and Spanish Waltz for two guitars by Calatayud and Ferrer

– Dad and Daughter

Siete Caciones Populares Espagnolas by Mauel de Falla – Mum and Dad

El Pano Moruno, Nana, Cacion, Polo and Jota

Sagamartha (Everest) – Composition by Sasha Witten-Hannah for Guitar and Cello

Inspired by a recent journey to the Himalayas
