Ascham Guitar Orchestra plays with Katie Noonan and Karin Schaupp

It isn’t often that schoolgirls get to play backup for world-renowned musicians, but Ascham’s Senior Guitar Orchestra did just that recently.

On 11 May Ascham girls in our Senior Guitar Orchestra were invited to back Katie Noonan and Karin Schaupp for a song in their Songs of the Latin Skies concert at the City Recital Hall, Angel Place.

Playing the Brazilian classic, Desafinado, with Katie singing vocals and Karin playing solo guitar, our girls had a wonderful time being part of this very special concert. Featuring bossa nova, samba, salsa and tango, and interpreting work by Gilberto Gil, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Luis Bonfa, Antonio Carlos Jobim, among others, Karin and Katie are playing concerts on a national tour to promote their new album.

In each major city, a local guitar ensemble has been invited to take part, and we were thrilled that our Senior Guitar Orchestra were chosen.
