September 16, 2013
The Camerata of St John's in Brisbane today starts their outback Queensland tour featuring special guest artists Shenzo Gregorio and Gerard Mapstone.
Two innovative musicians who constantly tour our country, garnering a huge following wherever they go. They provide a truly unique blend of Spanish flamenco, Gypsy jazz and Classical music.
Their performances are packed with ‘passionate and virtuosic playing, beauty, mystery and energy’. They invite everyone to enter their exciting ‘world of creation, improvisation, and connection’ to ravishing sounds. From the campfires of Andalucia to the concert halls of Vienna, their music is a passionate musical odyssey across the globe and beyond. Both classically trained they are leading contemporary performers of great versatility.
