"A wonderful way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday - at lovely Alberton House, being part of a convivial group of people enjoying a concert provided by two excellent classical guitar players, plus refreshments on the veranda..." - Pam

Anatolian born classical guitarist Barkin Sertkaya will join Bruce Paine for a concert entitled ‘Anatolia - Aotearoa’.  This will be a special manifestation of Barkin’s touring programme which has proven most popular with audiences.  Barkin will play a selection of guitar works inspired by music of his homeland and Bruce will offer a New Zealand perspective with some of his own compositions.

Featuring the premiere performance of ‘Anatolia - Aotearoa’, a newly composed guitar duet by Bruce Paine, celebrating and blending Middle Eastern and New Zealand/European musical styles. The duet is also in memory of the Christchurch Mosque shooting that occurred in March this year, 2019.

Ticket price includes complimentary drink (sparkling wine or fruit juice) on arrival from 3:30 pm and access to Alberton for a look around the historic house during opening hours.  There will be time following the performance to chat with the performers.  CDs will also be available at $25 per copy - cash sales only.
