Guitar Heroes Orchestra
18 novembER • CC DEURNE
Since 2014, a pop-up orchestra of 40 guitarists from all over Flanders opens the closing concert of the Antwerpen Gitaarfestival with music of contemporary composers closely involved with the festival.
Twice they have performed with Grammy Award-winning composer Andrew York, played the magical music of Johannes Möller and payed tribute to the Belgian composer Guy Cuyvers.
This year they will perform the challenging Concerto RV532 by Antonio Vivaldi with Eurostrings Artists Andrzej Grygier and Mateusz Kowalski as soloists. And as the icing on the cake a genuine world premiere with 'Nursery Rhyme' - dedicated to the orchestra - by Nejc Kuhar, composer in residence of this year’s Antwerpen Gitaarfestival.
The Guitar Heroes Orchestra is conducted by Helen Borremans.
