The Columbus Guitar Society, founded by a dedicated group of amateur classical guitarists in 1992, has grown to be one of the country’s most successful guitar societies. Under the leadership of Artistic Director, Eugene Braig, the CGS is the only organization to offer comprehensive programming for the classical guitar in the Central Ohio region. CGS brings a variety of activities to the public:
1. A professional concert series featuring world-renowned international stars. The season offers a handful of amazing concerts between October and May. Click here for details.
2. The Members’ Ensemble prepares two concerts each season. Click here for details.
3. Amateur players meet up and entertain the cafe crowd at 1 p.m. on the third Saturday of every month at the Starbuck’s Coffee, 2450 East Main Street, in Bexley.

Our Next event
Virtuoso David Jacques,
the Baroque and Romantic guitar
Both as soloist and as a guest of numerous orchestras and early-music ensembles, David Jacques has appeared in more than 3,500 performances in 35 countries and on more than 50 recordings. Amazing! Notably, three of his CDs have won the Conseil Québécois de la Musique’s Prix Opus. He also has one of the most impressive collections of historic guitars of which I’m aware (several highlighted on his last two exciting CDs, Histoires de Guitares). David will close our season ith a program of Baroque and Romantic music delivered using original guitars by Voboam (built in the 1660s) and Torres (1887)!
