Recent past events

Here is a list of some of our recent concerts and events.

Sunday, 24 June 2018, “Federation Day”

CGO hosted this year’s annual meeting of the Federation of Guitar Societies.  It was a pile of work preparing the event and organising the 60 plus participants on on the day, from welcoming them on arrival, through getting them ‘fed and watered’, making sure they played more or less in time, to washing up and tidying up afterwards.  So special thanks to Allix, Claire, Greg, Julia, Sue, Tony and Valérie.

Here is a taster of the massed guitar orchestra of all participants  (for more, see the CGO’s YouTube channel, or visit the Federation’s website):

We played a range of music written for, or arranged for, classical guitar esemble, including music by Amelkina-Vera, Dumigan, Houghton, Saint-Saëns, Schubert and Walton. In addition, Valérie Hartzell, our Musical Director, and Mat James, one of our professional members, played some solos.
