Plectra Guitar Ensemble: Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts

The classical guitar program at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (Edith Cowan University) has been led by A/Prof Jonathan Paget since 2003. Paget maintains an active profile as a performing musician, recording artist, researcher, and pedagogue, and is also President of the Classical Guitar Society of WA. Regrettably, he is unable to be present at the festival today.

Dr Melissa Fitzgerald has been the principal director of the Plectra Guitar Ensemble since 2018. An active classical guitarist and graduate of WAAPA, she is founder of the Perth Guitar Quartet, a sessional lecture at WAAPA, as well as teaching across several leading private schools in Perth.

The Plectra Guitar Ensemble was established under this name in 2005, and is widely recognized for their explorations of challenging and innovative repertoire. Recent programs have included “The Parisian Guitar” (2019), “From Beatles to Bowie,” (2019), “Landscapes of the Australian Guitar” (2018), “The Guitar in Dance and Dream” (2018), “Guitar Brazilliance” (2017), and “Rosemary and Thyme: The English Guitar,” among many others. The ensemble performs regularly as part of WAAPA’s renowned public performing arts program, as well as off-campus. In May 2019 (with Jonathan Paget) they gave a highly-successful performance in collaboration with guitarists from the Melbourne Conservatorium at the new Ian Potter Southbank Centre.
