"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!"
“The Aurora Guitar Ensemble was a wonderful inspiration and such a surprise for me. Their performance at the Adelaide International Guitar Festival was like a breath of fresh air!
I congratulate the ensemble and their esteemed director Paul Svoboda on the high standard of their performance.
The medium of the guitar ensemble “comes of age” with pure musicality, depth, and just a great sense of fun!”
"It was my greatest pleasure to play with the Aurora Guitar Ensemble as part of the Adelaide Guitar Festival Orchestra. Your concert as part of the Adelaide Festival was a delight and when the curtain raised there was an 'Awe' around the audience, you looked that good.
Wonderful players and fabulous conductor. Well done to you all and especially Paul Svoboda whose creativity and talent binds it all together. Best wishes. Hope to see you again soon."
