GUEST ARTISTS SYDNEY BALALAIKA ORCHESTRA

Led by Musical Director, Victor Serghie, the Sydney Balalaika Orchestra performs authentic, beautiful and exciting arrangements of Russian folk music on traditional instruments. 

This 25-member Russian folk orchestra of musicians and a vocalist have performed for over 30 years in Australia and overseas. The Orchestra has toured extensively in China, New Zealand, and have been invited 5 times to Russia, touring Moscow, St Petersburg, Siberia and Russia’s Far East.

From achingly tender folk songs to dizzying tempos of instrumental “tour de force”, a performance by the Sydney Balalaika Orchestra will sweep you away.


2019 AATA Masterclasses

For the 2019 AATA Festival, we are thrilled to announce two international masterclasses by some of the world’s most respected accordion teachers.  Wang Hongyu from China, and head of the Harbin Accordion Festival is one of that country’s leading accordion professors, and his festival attracts top competitors and concert artists from all corners of the globe.

Also presenting will be Slovenian accordionist Primoz Parovel.  Primoz recently completed a recording of Scarlatti sonatas, released by Sony Music and is regarded as one of the foremost experts on classical accordion.  As a teacher, his students have won numerous international events including our AATA International Championship.


MASTERCLASS WITH WANG HONGYU  

One of China’s leading accordion professors, his masterclass at our 2019 AATA festival is a unique opportunity to learn from a world class expert.  Whether you are a player, teacher or simply an accordion enthusiast, this masterclass promises to expand your musical knowledge and provides an opportunity to develop your skills and technique.


SONY MUSIC RECORDING ARTIST PRIMOZ PAROVEL

We are thrilled to welcome Primoz back to Australia as a guest, adjudicator and presenter.  Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from one of todays leading accordion teachers and recording artists.
