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!

Enric Madriguera is director of Guitar Studies and Professor of Aesthetic Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas. He is a cofounder and artistic director for the Texas Guitar Competition and Festival, and the Guitar Series at UTD. He also developed The Collegiate Competition and Festival, a summer festival at Eastfield College. He is a past advisory chair for the Dallas Classic Guitar Society and a current Advisory member to the Allegro Guitar Society.

Enric travels annually to festivals and performances in the Americas and Europe. His recording “Old World/New World” has been well received by the music press at home and abroad. Classical Guitar International, of London, likes Madriguera’s “passionate playing” of Spanish and Latin American Music. The American Record Guide states that the gold CD is “….well paced and presented with clever programming.” Gitarre und Laute states that the Enric’s playing on the CD is “eloquent.” In live performance Wayne Lee Gay, music critic of the Ft. Worth Star Telegram described Madriguera’s performance in the Ft. Worth Guitar Society’s Tribute to Segovia as one which “….widened the musical range of the evening with lute pieces from the Italian Renaissance.”

Enric is married to Sabine Rabe who hails from Berlin/ Germany. She is a classical guitarist and Director of Guitar Studies at Collin College. Recent performances of Enric as a solist or chamber duo with Sabine, or with soprano Kathryn Evans, include performances at international festivals in Rust/Austria, Brno/Czech Republic, Guanajauto/ Mexico, and Palencia/ Spain.

“… passionate playing of Spanish and Latin American music.”
