World-renowned classical guitarists, the Grigoryan Brothers, are set to make a popular return to Mildura Arts Centre (MAC) next month, fresh off their latest successful UK tour.

Widely regarded as Australia’s finest classical guitarists, the Grigoryan Brothers last performed at MAC in 2015 to rave reviews.

Between them the brothers have received three ARIA Awards and an amazing 24 ARIA Award nominations.

Currently completing the final leg of their UK tour, the Grigoryan Brothers have spent the past two years performing alongside some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, including as support for Canadian singer/song-writer KD Lang in 2017 on her Ingénue Redux, 25th Anniversary Tour, illustrating their broad appeal and incredible skills.

At the same time as touring with KD Lang, the guitar duo’s latest classical release Songs Without Words was enjoying a three-month stint at the top of the classic music charts.

Embracing genres including classical, jazz and contemporary music from around the world, the Grigoryan Brothers have recorded 11 albums, with a 12th masterpiece due out later this year.

Councillor for Arts and Culture Jason Modica encouraged Sunraysia music-lovers to take advantage of the first opportunity in four years to experience the Grigoryan Brothers live.

“People who saw the Grigoryan Brothers perform during their last show in Mildura in 2015 still talk about it,” Cr Modica said.

“We’re so fortunate to have such a world-renowned act perform in our city. It’s an opportunity other cities in Australia, if not the world, would quickly snap up.”
