The ANU School of Music is reaching out from behind brutalist concrete walls, to present FREE weekly lunch time concerts in the Pop-up Village venue. Every Tuesday from 12.30 to 2pm during teaching periods, we will present musicians from a range of musical styles and backgrounds: students, staff and Alumni from the School of Music but also talented musicians, producers and DJs, both students and staff from across the campus.
This week we have PhD Candidate Callum Henshaw performing at the Lunchbox concert. Callum is a Canberra-born classical guitarist and is considered one of Australia's leading young players. He has had success in a number of major national and international competitions, including First Prize Winner at the 2012 Cordoba International Guitar Competition, the 2014 Tirana International Guitar Competition, and the 2015 Friends of the ANU School of Music Chamber Music Competition (with Andrew Blanch); Best Performance of an Australian Work at the 2013 Melbourne Guitar Competition; and Third Prize at the 2014 Adelaide International Guitar Competition. He also won the First Prize and the People's Choice Prize at the 2016 Whitworth Roach Classical Music Competition.
Callum will be performing his second of three recitals for his PhD on Friday 29 September, 6pm in the Larry Sitsky Recital Room, ANU School of Music. This event is free and open to the public.
