The purpose of the South Bay Guitar Society is to promote classical and related guitar music to people of all cultures, ages, abilities, and economic means, primarily in the South Bay Area, but also nationally and internationally. The Society fulfills its purpose by offering culturally diverse performances and guitar music education to the public, and by providing performance opportunities to professional and amateur musicians.

We fulfill our mission through the following programs:

  • Ticketed in-person and virtual online concerts
  • Regular in-person and virtual open microphone meetings
  • Occasional lectures, educational forums, and recitals
  • School visits by local and visiting artists
  • Information and networking through our website, events calendar, social media, friendly referrals, and joint marketing partnerships.
