SACRAMENTO GUITAR ORCHESTRA
Greg Williams, Director
A Sacramento Guitar Society Program
Guitar Ensemble Music - Three and Four Part Guitar Orchestra Fun!
Summer 2012, An Invitation from Greg -
Now that our Summer break is over, I'm looking forward to our next rehearsal on August 19th at 2pm. In addition, we have a performance opportunity at the annual Guitar Society concert Wednesday, Sept. 5 from noon-1 pm at Westminster Church's Music at Noon concert series in downtown Sacramento. Please confirm whether or not you can participate in the concert, so we can make final part assignments to achieve a good balance of parts.
The tentative program would include the Handel trios we previously performed as well as two of the latest batch of World Music pieces, Tina Singu and Noches de Espana. We will be rehearsing these on August 19th. If you need the sheet music, please let me know which part you have been playing and I can email you pdf files. I'll also have some photocopied parts available at the rehearsal. I have not made rehearsal recordings of the World Music pieces yet, but I'll let everyone know when they are available.
Thanks again and let's all look forward to rocking out with a big pile of guitars!
Next rehearsal and mini-performance:
2pm - 3:15pm Sunday May 19th,

"It was a treat for Gregory 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.
