Classical Guitar Ensemble



Classical Guitar Ensemble
The Villa Musica Classical Guitar Ensemble is a community-based group that appeals to a wide range of ages, abilities and backgrounds. It offers fully-vaccinated participants an exciting opportunity to collaborate with other musicians and experience the joy of performing within the security of a larger group. At the end of each semester, the participants present a public recital showcasing the repertoire learned during the sessions.

The ensemble performs works from classical, popular, folk and contemporary genres. In past concerts the ensemble has performed works ranging from Bach to Bartók, The Beatles to The Police and Flamenco. The ensemble’s players’ abilities range from early intermediate to upper advanced. To accommodate the diversity of the ensemble, and provide different challenges for intermediate and advanced guitarists, the parts are distributed based on each player’s experience. No audition is necessary; to join you need a nylon string guitar and the ability to read music in first position.
