"It was a treat for Gregory [Newton] and me to play for the Sacramento Guitar Society. It's gratifying to see such a thriving organization. I'm especially glad to see the guitar orchestra component, involving many more of the members. That's a great idea. Many thanks for all your help and hospitality."
David Grimes, Spring 2013
“Heavy Holidays”
Hello, and welcome to SGSO’s Winter 2016 season! This December, join us for a concert of holiday fun with a program of mash-ups, holiday favorites on the heavier side, and some random tunes thrown into the pot for seasoning. We have tunes arranged and written by SGSO member and Meetup organizer Jeff Claybaugh and by SGSO director Sean O’Connor. Jeff’s arrangements include an original tune inspired by “We Three Kings,” redone in a bluesy style, as well as the classic “Carol of the Bells,” and an arrangement of Percy Grainger’s “Ye Banks and Braes O’ Bonnie Doon.” Mr. O’Connor’s contributions include two mash-ups, one of “Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy” with Pink Floyd’s “Money,” and another of “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” with Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.” More to come! Please join us by coming to the concert, being our guest at a rehearsal, or joining the orchestra.We are very excited to be presenting two wonderful groups of arrangements by Andrew Forrest. First, “Five Trios,” a collection of arrangements of folk melodies from the England, Scotland, Ireland, Greece, and the Unites States. Next, “Amtrad,” a medley of well known American songs from the pioneer and gold rush days. Just to sweeten the pot, we will also be playing Franz Schubert’s “Moments Musicaux Number 3,” arranged by SJ Nixon. Please join us for our concert in May, or perhaps earlier at one of our rehearsals!​  

Cheers!
