About - Mission
Florida's pioneer Classical Guitar nonprofit organization, the Miami Classical Guitar Society initiated and developed a guitar movement in Miami since 1987, establishing South Florida as a hub of international importance for the instrument. Dedicated to enriching our culture, MCGS promotes art, awareness, and education of Classical Guitar through world-class performance, innovation, and vision.

The MCGS has created and organized over 200 concerts featuring world-renowned guitarists and local talent, founded Miami's International Guitar Festival & Competition, Miami's Guitar Ensemble Festival, and the Miami Classical Guitar Orchestra, as well as directed two of the most prestigious International Guitar Festivals in the country through the Guitar Foundation of America in 1991 and 2002. A strong advocate for music and guitar education, MCGS actively works with school music programs yearly, visiting young musicians and highlighting student guitar ensembles and performers as part of our series.

Through our yearly cultural programming including world-class concerts, master classes, lectures, lecture-recitals, guitar courses, ensembles, and international competitions, MCGS founder Carlos Molina is a tireless promoter of the instrument, dedicated to offering guitar lovers, performers, teachers, and students the opportunity to enjoy wonderful performances and further develop their talents.

We look forward in continuing with our cultural endeavor to share and foster the love for this beautiful instrument within our community and beyond. Join us!

Maurizio Di Fulvio (Italy)
Maurizio Di Fulvio

Maurizio Di Fulvio was born in Chieti but lives steadily in Pescara, Italy. The critics considered him one the most original and remarkable guitarists of our times. “…an eclectic wide-ranging musician, endowed with a hearty spontaneous temperament, skilled improviser and refined arranger…”, “he knows how to read and interpret different musical languages”, ”his performances, sometimes gritty and energetic, other times refined and ornate, always somewhere in between a respect for tradition and innovation”,…being kept up with an innate instrumental elegance.

After earning a diploma in classical guitar, he claims an artistic training with such musicians as Julian Bream, Abel Carlevaro, John Scofield, and Pat Matheny. He won first prizes and gained several prizes in prestigious contests, displaying an intense activity at an international level, with important concerts in Europe and America, performing both as a solo player as well as with various groups (Duo Felicioni-Di Fulvio, Duo MauMan, Trio Saudade, Almaan jazz Trio, Maurizio Di Fulvio Trio, Ensemble ‘900, Labirinto Armonico, Complesso Strumentale Italiano). He has done recordings for several television and radio broadcasts, and has participated in many recording sessions, with a repertoire which includes original works, transcriptions, compositions of his own, jazz and Latin-American arrangements and improvisations.

Maurizio has been credited with the attention of many composers of our time, among them S. Bussotti, L. Berio, and S. Sciarrino, who have often confided in him to review, adapt, and perform their works. He has also won high praise by the audience.

“…one of the most innovative guitarists of the contemporary musical scenery.”
