Riverside Guitar Ensemble

The Riverside Guitar Ensemble is resident at the Queensland Conservatorium and brings together Queensland’s finest young professional guitarists with current guitar students from the Conservatorium guitar department.


The ensemble has performed extensively in South-East Queensland and continues to challenge the boundaries of repertoire for this unique ensemble combination. It is rare and challenging for a guitar ensemble of this size to perform unconducted, making it function much like a chamber orchestra and resulting in a very strong sense of communication amongst all members and they’re coming to Boonah. 


The ensemble’s premiere recording of “Ginastera’s Dream” by Brazilian composer Chrystian Dozza has been internationally released on Dozza’s new CD. The ensemble has also appeared alongside the internationally acclaimed ZOO Guitar Duo (Holland) and continues to premiere and commission new works. 


The Riverside Guitar Ensemble is directed by internationally acclaimed guitarist Karin Schaupp.
