Profile Information

About me:
Alan Rinehart has close to 40 years experience as a professional classical guitarist. .

A new resident of Kelowna, he is no stranger to Okanagan audiences having performed as soloist with the Okanagan Symphony, played feature concerts in Kelowna, Peachland and Vernon with the Vancouver Guitar Quartet and most recently presented a duo concert at the Kelowna Art Gallery with his long time friend and colleague Clive Titmuss. www.earlymusicstudio.com

In addition to performing he has considerable experience organizing musical events and concert series for himself and other performers.

He has made many contributions to the guitar world as a performer, teacher, and music editor. Completing studies at Western Michigan University and a Professional Music Training Diploma from Vancouver Community College, he studied lute repertoire and technique in London, England at the Early Music Centre with Anthony Rooley, Jakob Lindberg, Nigel North and Emma Kirkby.

In 1980 he gave a critically acclaimed London debut which was described by GUITAR INTERNATIONAL magazine as: "consistently clean and musical...he has a pleasantly relaxed stage manner which won over the audience right from the word go". In addition to many concert recitals, he has performed at international music festivals in Spain, the United States, Toronto and Quebec and appeared on CBC radio and TV.

He is a co-founder of The Vancouver Guitar Quartet, which became a regular part of the Vancouver and Western Canadian music scene from the late 1980s to 2003, with many concert and radio appearances.

He has released three solo CDs and one CD with the Vancouver Guitar Quartet that have received international critical praise; Renaissance Masters and Latin Romantics in 1981, Musical Banquet in 2000, The Golden Century in 2010 and Estampas with the VGQ in 1999.

From 1983 to 2003 he was a faculty member of the music schools at the University of British Columbia and Vancouver Community College
