About
Welcome to The Miami Classical Guitar Society! Now celebrating an exciting 27th Season, 2014-2015! We hope you will join us!

A non-profit 501c3 cultural organization, the MCGS initiated and developed a guitar movement in the city of Miami in 1987, establishing South Florida as a hub of international importance for the instrument. With a mission to promote the art and appreciation of the Classical Guitar in our community, the MCGS has organized close to 200 concerts featuring the top international world renowned guitarists, as well as national and local performers. Dedicated to enhancing awareness, appreciation, and education of this beautiful instrument, the MCGS has offered guitar lovers, local 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 international competitions.

One of the most thriving guitar societies in the US, the MCGS has also 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, among many other educational and social events, for close to three decades.

Our initial goal of promoting the classical guitar within South Florida has been fulfilled, and we can now take part in this wonderful cultural experience. Please join us this Season!
