Seattle Classic Guitar Society
About Our Organization

The mission of the Seattle Classic Guitar Society is to promote the art of the classical guitar in the Greater Seattle Area by building and sustaining a diverse community of students, performers and listeners through concerts, master classes, performance opportunities, gatherings and outreach.

The Seattle Classic Guitar Society was founded in 1958. The Society is a local, unendowed, member-based, 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the art of the classical guitar in the Puget Sound, Pacific Northwest, Washington area. The SCGS presents a variety of musical events featuring world-class artists, masterclasses, and local member open mics. The Society produces a bi-monthy newsletter, Guitar Soundings, containing guitar and music-related articles and dates of upcoming events both in Seattle and across the nation.

Tax-deductible donations, in-kind donations, and employer matching gifts are gladly accepted and appreciated. Your support helps us to bring the finest international and local artists to perform in the Seattle area year after year. Online donations can be made here.
