|Welcome to The Miami Classical Guitar Society! We are now in our 26th Season, 2013-2014!
The MCGS is a non-profit 501c3 cultural organization founded in 1987, with a Mission to promote the art and appreciation of the Classical Guitar in our community, and to bring guitar lovers the opportunity to enjoy performances by local, national and international world renowned guitarists. Dedicated to enhancing the awareness and education of the classical guitar in our city, we have offered performers, teachers, and students the means to further develop their talents and passion for the classical guitar through our yearly cultural programming of concerts, master classes, lectures, lecture-recitals, guitar courses, ensembles, and competitions.
One of the most thriving guitar societies in the US, the MCGS has brought hundreds of acclaimed guitarists to Miami, directed two of the most prestigious International Guitar Festivals in the country with the Guitar Foundation of America, created the First Guitar Ensemble Festival of Miami, founded Miami's First International Guitar Competition, and held a yearly programing series, among many other educational and social events, for over two decades.
Our initial goal of promoting and developing a classical guitar movement central to the city of Miami has been fulfilled, establishing South Florida as a hub of international importance for the instrument. We can now take part in this wonderful cultural experience as in no other time in Miami. We hope you join us this Season!

The Siqueira-Lima Duo is formed by Uruguayan Cecilia Siqueira and by Brazilian Fernando Lima. Together since 2002, they are a global reference in acoustic duo formation, with remarkable performances in major festivals, major theatres and television programs. Critics have always highlighted their absolute timing and technique to acoustic guitars, but mainly the charisma and joy to make music. Their first meeting was marked by a historic event in their careers, which occurred in the 2001 International Guitar Competition in Caxias do Sul (Brazil), where they shared First Prize.
The Duo's latest recording album, “Um a Um” (2010), was released in Europe and the United States by the acclaimed Belgian GHA Records label, fully formed by Brazilian music repertoire, with unpublished arrangements created by their own and with works composed and dedicated especially to them. The CD was released in the “III International Guitar Festival of Paris” and has been praised by specialized magazines, such as the “Guitare Classique” (France), “Classical guitar” (England) and “il Fronimo (Italy).
The CD “Lado a Lado - Side by Side” (2006), revealed the intimacy of the Duo with Brazilian music and opened the doors to a broader musical universe, in addition to the classical music. Currently, they are requested in both chamber music series on popular music or Jazz festivals. The duo has performed all over Europe, United States and South America, and recently returned from their first trip to South Africa. Their tours include concerts in major theatres and festivals, such as Festival Internacional de Guitare de Paris (France), Palazzo Kongresowa (Warsaw-Poland); International Musical Festival (Kaluga-Russia); Jazz Festival (St. Petersburg-Russia), Brest International Music Festival (Brest-Belarus), Festival de Guitare de Lausanne (Lausanne-Switzerland), Festival Guitares du Monde (Perpignan-France), National Concert Hall and Festival of World Cultures, (Dublin-Ireland), Palazzina Liberty (Milan-Italy), Tchaikovsky (Gomel-Belarus) and Ësterhaze Castle (Fertod-Hungary).
The Siqueira-Lima Duo also performs with symphonic orchestras, such as the São Paulo metropolitan Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra of the University of São Paulo, and teach workshops and Master Classes around the world. They recently performed alongside the great Brazilian Clarinetist and conductor, Paulo Moura, covering works of Radamés Gnattali and Astor Piazzolla.
