Free Concert with Alan Rinehart

He has released six solo CDs (“Renaissance Masters and Latin Romantics”, “Musical Banquet”,  “The Golden Century”, “Soliloquies and Dreams”, “Spanish Recital” and “Verdi’s Guitar”) and one CD with the Vancouver Guitar Quartet. All have received international critical praise; His latest solo CD “Verdi’s Guitar” was released in Fall 2017.


Alan Rinehart is a co-founder of The Vancouver Guitar Quartet that became a regular part of the Vancouver and Western Canadian music scene in the late 1980’s with many concert and radio appearances including a broadcast concert on CBC’s ARTS NATIONAL, and enthusiastically acclaimed performances as featured artists in the host pavilion at EXPO 86. After an hiatus of a number of years the Quartet reformed in 1996 and released its debut recording “Estampas” in 1999. The Quartet disbanded in 2003.
