Founded in 2007, the Aurora Guitar Ensemble has become one of Australia’s newest and most exciting groups, renowned for their musical energy and sensitivity.

In 2014 the ensemble performed in the Adelaide International Guitar Festival to great acclaim, and their CD, Every Second Tuesday, was one of the best-selling items at the Festival. Their latest CD, Sunday Sessions, was released in 2016.

'The Aurora Guitar Ensemble is an exceptional group. Through the guidance and direction of Dr Paul Svoboda they have evolved into one of the finest guitar ensembles that we've heard anywhere. It is always a joy to see this group of young guitarists making music together - always inspiring!' (Slava & Leonard Grigoryan)

“The Aurora Guitar Ensemble is a Queensland musical treasure and indeed, it is one of Australia’s Leading Guitar Ensembles!” (Karin Schaupp)
