Callum Henshaw
CANBERRA-BORN classical guitarist, Callum Henshaw, has won first prize in the IX Concurso Internacional de Guitarra at the  Festival de Córdoba in  Spain.

Henshaw received grants from the ANU and the Friends of the School of Music to travel to Spain to participate in the Córdoba Guitar Festival and International Competition, which gathers some of the world’s top  guitarists.

A  guitar player from the age of six, he has studied with guitarist Carolyn Kidd, Daniel McKay and Minh Le Hoang and is completing  a Bachelor degree in Music Performance at the ANU School of Music under Professor  Timothy Kain, one the staff members whose future is in question.

Former students of Kain who have also won the Cordoba competition include Jacob Cordover, Harold Gretton and Bradley Kunda.

Henshaw is a member of Canberra Classical Guitar Society and performs as a member of the Canberra Guitar Quartet with guitarists Andrew Blanch, Campbell Diamond and Andrey Lebedev.
