SACRAMENTO GUITAR SOCIETY ORCHESTRA
Sean O'Connor, Director
A Sacramento Guitar Society Program
Guitar Ensemble Music - Three and Four Part Guitar Orchestra Fun!
This season’s Holiday Concert will feature a broad program, including the theme music from Tchaikovsky’s timeless masterpiece “Swan Lake,” selections from contemporary composer and arranger Andrew Forrest, Robert Jones’ lute song “What if I Sped,” as well as several delightful holiday arrangements. Our orchestra continues to grow in both numbers and musicianship, and I hope to see you at our next rehearsal, whether you’re a guitar player interested in participating, or a music lover ready to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
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
Greetings! I am honored and excited to be the Sacramento Guitar Society Orchestra's Director. Our 2014 program builds on the excellence achieved by Greg Williams, the original director, and all of the fine players in the orchestra. It's a fun, inclusive, and enriching opportunity for guitarists to come together and make beautiful music!
