SACRAMENTO GUITAR SOCIETY ORCHESTRA
Sean O'Connor, Director
A Sacramento Guitar Society Program
Guitar Ensemble Music - Three and Four Part Guitar Orchestra Fun!
Our 2014 program builds on the excellence achieved by Greg Williams, the original director, and all of the fine players in the orchestra. Let's forge ahead together and make the orchestra even more of what it already is: a fun, inclusive, and enriching opportunity for guitarists to come together and make beautiful music! Our program this season includes the folk songs "Estartit," "El Ruquet Valent," "Taconeado," "Calypso," and "Tina Singu." Also, to commemorate the spring, we will be performing the Renaissance lute song "O Lusty May," and the second movement of Vivaldi's "Spring."
See you soon!

"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
From Sean O'Connor, Director
I am honored and excited to be the Sacramento Guitar Society Orchestra's new Director.
The Sacramento Guitar Society Orchestra is Sacramento County's resource for a community based ensemble for guitar, sponsored by the Sacramento Guitar Society. It's an inclusive and fun activity directed by Sean O'Connor, and an opportunity to develop you music and reading skills. Rehearsals are the hour before SGS meetings, typically the 3rd Sunday of the month, 2pm. Click into the links here for samples of repertoire.
