Classical Guitar Societies and Organizations

Classical Guitar Societies and OrganizationsClassical guitar societies, organizations, and concert series. The list mainly focuses on societies involved in international concert series but others factors such as community building may be factored. Keep in mind that I can’t list every small guitar club in the world. Lute is very welcome but I can’t list every early music society either. You can help by suggesting a society or series via the email address below. If you are from a society, let me know if your link address changes. I’ll try to verify the links often to remove or update the list. Also see our page for Classical Guitar Festivals and Competitions as many festivals are societies as well.
