Hi Alan

The Victorian Classical Guitar Society has changed it's url, it is now http://www.cgsv.org.au. The old one, no longer appears to work. I just tried accessing the site via it & got a message about the site not loading - the cgsv url does work. This could be just a temporary thing with their domain redirection, or they just didn't renew the domain.

I'll drop them a line about it as well, just to check.


Regards,

David.

I wish their was a classical guitar society in my home town and the best i can do in this feild is learning how to read music by joining the choral socity. It help to meet up with other people who lovethe classical side of life just as much as i do.

The Knoxville Guitar Society is great! (Knoxville, Tennessee). We frequently have guest artist sand the Society sponsors masterclasses with the artists. We also have a network of studios that participate in relaxed presentations of pieces for students and local guitarist. I've really enjoyed watching the Society's growth.http://www.knoxguitar.org

Thanks, Andy. I've added the Knoxville Guitar Society to the master list. I hope they continue to grow! :)

The Bromley Guitar Society
(London / Kent UK)
http://bromleyguitarsociety.blogspot.co.uk

This classical guitar society has been going for about 30 years I think, but I can't see it on your list. I've been going for about 4 years. It's a friendly group, meeting every 3rd Saturday of the month from 6.30-9.30pm. The group plays mainly ensemble pieces but always includes a slot for solo guitars and duets to play. It enters one or two local music festivals a year, takes part in the annual meet up of guitar societies organised by the UK Federation of guitar societies and occasionally hosts a classical guitar concert.

There is a new classical guitar society in Madison Wisconsin-- The Madison Classical Guitar Society. http://madisonclassicalguitarsociety.org. It is a small but friendly group, meeting once a month. The society also sponsors a biweekly guitar showcase.

Liverpool has one, I won't be going there again though, they have a great room, which they get for free, but they kinda pressure you for cash, bit odd, some decent players there like, am only a beginner, but they're all nervous, again odd, seems they don't wanna change that, they'll know who I am when they read this, haha :D

When I got there, they were talking about those who'd left, and probably wouldn't be coming back. They seem to dote on Masterclasses for some reason, instead of utilising the time when everyone's there, seems...you guessed it, odd. Maybe it's me, lol. Anywho, they collaborate with Chester classical guitar society, and I never met any of them, but it seems a shame the Liverpool one lacks any real fire and passion for learning, more of a trundle than a drive, so if a trundle is your thing, then it's right up your alley, remember to take your cash too.

The Mid-Hudson Classical Guitar Society was formed in February of 2010 by guitarists Russell Austin, Gregory Dinger, and David Temple, and luthier William Kramer-Harrison.
Our Mission is to increase knowledge and awareness of the classical guitar in our community and to share and enjoy the music of the classical guitar.
MHCGS meets about six times each year at the Morton Memorial Library in Rhinecliff, New York.
We host performing artists, master classes, lectures, and theme programs in which guitarists from the Hudson Valley region are invited to perform.
MHCGS is also a social and professional network for guitarists and lovers of the guitar. We invite everyone to participate.
MHCGS is a not for profit organization (501c3) operating under fiscal sponsorship of Mid-Hudson Arts Inc.(formerly the Dutchess County Arts Council).
Visit us at http://www.mhcgs.blogspot.com for our schedule of events and more information.
