“One of the strongest guitar societies in the U.S, serving the classical guitar community with great devotion, professionalism, and passion for music.” – Martha Masters, President of the Guitar Foundation of America.

New York City Classical Guitar Society is a New York-based organization founded in 2000 whose mission is to provide a framework for the shared enjoyment and exploration of the classical guitar in New York City, and to promote awareness and appreciation of its heritage and influences across musical genres.

Building on the tradition of New York’s first classical guitar society, they seek to serve all facets of the New York classical guitar community: amateurs, professionals, and concertgoers. Their program activities include monthly lectures, workshops, and master classes by top guitarists, composers, and musicologists; an International Artist Series; Salon Series; and their New York City Guitar Orchestra.
