TO EVERYONE WHO GAVE THIS YEAR -
Thank you for your generous contributions throughout the year,
All nonprofits operate on the support of the communities in which they serve. Our mission of increasing access to the art of the guitar clearly resonates with the Greater Sacramento Region.
Here's a recent photo of the SGS Outreach Program - a visit to MVP Sacramento by Isaac Bustos:
In May, SGS sponsored internationally renowned virtuoso classical guitarist Isaac Bustos, winner in 12 international competitions, in a meeting with students from a remarkable program for at-risk youth in South Sacramento. We were greeted by all the students with a handshake, smile and self-introduction, and clearly, these students are learning important life skills.
We'll be back to help these kids.
We are grateful to the Rotary Club of South Sacramento for a targeted grant for this event.
Your attendance at our ticketed concerts also supports our entire Outreach Program!

VALENTINE'S GUITAR CONCERT
Michael Chapdelaine is "absolutely magical" and will perform for SGS on Valentine's Day! The ideal night out! Opening for Michael will be jazz harpist Motoshi Kosako. Check both of them out on YouTube and mark your calendar for Saturday, February 14th at the Harris Center.
Michael is Professor of Music and head of guitar studies at the University of New Mexico.
He is also the only guitarist ever to win First Prize in the world's top competitions in both the Classical and Fingerstyle genres; the Guitar Foundation of America International Classical Guitar Competition and the National Fingerstyle Championships
at the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival in Winfield , Kansas.
Michael has been heard to describe himself as 'A guitarist
who used to own a tuxedo'.
Acoustic Guitar magazine wrote "... I have seldom heard a
more beautiful album. Other young guitarists have excellent
technique, but few have such style and musicality, and
Chapdelaine's beautiful tone is the nearest to Segovia's that
I can recall."
