|About - Mission
|Florida's pioneer Classical Guitar nonprofit organization, The Miami Classical Guitar Society initiated and developed a guitar movement in Miami starting in 1987, establishing South Florida as a hub of international importance for the instrument. Dedicated to enriching our culture, the MCGS was founded to promote the art, appreciation, education, and awareness of Classical Guitar in our community through world-class performance, innovation and vision.
The MCGS has created and organized over 200 concerts featuring world-renowned guitarists and local talent; directed two of Guitar Foundation of America International Competitions in 1991 and 2002; founded Miami's International Guitar Festival and Competition, Miami's Guitar Ensemble Festival, and the Miami Guitar Orchestra, among many other events. A strong advocate for music and guitar education, the MCGS actively works with school music programs yearly, visiting young musicians and highlighting student guitar ensembles and performers as part of our series.
Our initial goal to create exposure, foster, and share this magnificent instrument continues to expand, generating enthusiasm for the Classical Guitar throughout our community and for younger generations of aspiring guitarists. Join us!
