Seattle Classic Guitar Society
Annual Holiday Fund-Raising Concert

One of the favorite events of the year is the Annual SCGS Holiday Fundraiser Concert!

On December 12, 2020, the Seattle Classic Guitar Society had the honor of presenting the Annual Holiday Concert on Zoom with heartfelt performances, a lovely audience, and a hope for a brighter new year. Here is a video of a virtual ensemble rendition of "Jesu bleibet meine freude" (Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring) from Cantata No. 147 by J.S. Bach. This excerpt was arranged for guitars, flutes, recorders, and cello by Manfred Hossel and and Mark Hilliard Wilson. This collaborative video project was created by friends and members of the Seattle Classic Guitar Society for the 2020 SCGS Holiday Concert, inspired by the theme, "Hope, Joy, and Peace." Enjoy!
