CGO is a group of around 20 classical guitarists, who
perform regularly in and around Cambridgeshire. Occasionally, we give
concerts further afield in the UK, and we have also performed in
Belgium and France.
Our Musical Director is Valérie Hartzell; in the photo
she is standing in the archway, backing us up. You can find out more
about her here, and of course on her own
web site (http://www.valeriehartzell.co.uk/).
The CGO was originally established in 1991 by Lorraine
Eastwood and the late Chris Kilvington. In 1996 Peter Rueffer took over
as our Musical Director for 20 years, before handing over to Valérie.
Here is a flavour of the kind of music we play. In this
clip, we are playing two movements from Henry Purcell's The Fairy
Queen in an arrangement by Peter Rueffer. You can catch a glimpse
of Peter as he moves forward on the left of the frame. You can find out
more about our music by clicking on "Our music" in the top menu.
Regardless of whether you are interested in:
hiring us for a performance or fund-raising event,
coming to listen to
one of our performances,
or just curious,
we hope you find what you are
looking for on the web site.
If not, do drop us an email (see details
on the contact page).
