Thank you, Russ. The Mid-Hudson Classical Guitar Society has now been added to the Master List.

Hey I'm Andi from Germany, Ansbach

We have a music school here, but I've never been there.
I learned guitar mainly myself.
A really nice thing to mention is, that we have a cafe here,
which organizes Jam-Sessions each two months or so.
Every kind of music is played there. Jazz, Country, Blues, Gipsy
and so on.... it's really nice

Hello Everyone,

I recently joined the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society. They have great concerts and feature talented guitarist. They had Sharon Isbin this year, unfortunately I was unable to see her but looking forward to next year's concert series.

Anyone know of classical guitar societies in the UAE (Abu Dhabi or Dubai)?

When I got there, they were talking about those who'd left, and probably wouldn't be coming back. They seem to dote on Masterclasses for some reason, instead of utilising the time when everyone's there, seems...you guessed it, odd. Maybe it's me, lol. Anywho, they collaborate with Chester classical guitar society, and I never met any of them, but it seems a shame the Liverpool one lacks any real fire and passion for learning, more of a trundle than a drive, so if a trundle is your thing, then it's right up your alley, remember to take your cash too.
Some guitar societies can be a bit oppressive or have the whiff of death about them or lots of unnecessary name dropping. On the other hand, there's a very good one in Leeds - West Yorkshire Classical Guitar Society - wygcs.com which is having its 12th meeting next week. Very easy-going, very friendly.

Too bad it is a long drive from Heiloo / Alkmaar.

That is really good news as I didn't know a new society had started up for Leeds. Thanks for this.

The Oxford Guitar Society, http://www.oxfordguitarsociety.org.uk, has recently settled into a new venue in a refurbished hall (with a nice acoustic) in Sandford-on-Thames on the south-eastern outskirts of Oxford, OX4 4YN. Importantly there is plenty of car parking here!

Society meetings are held on the second Sunday of the month from 19:00 to 22:00. Details of each meeting are posted on the news page of the website. We play ensemble music, solos, duets etc and we often invite guests to give mini-recitals. The society also promotes concerts, that latest being due tomorrow as detailed here: viewtopic.php?f=32&t=94142.

The society has retained a core of faithful members through several changes of venue in the last two or three years. The prospect, now, of a settled home will, I hope, mean that we can attract new members from Oxford and surrounding areas.

The society is fortunate in having the guitarist Raymond Burley as patron; he freely gives us his time (when he is not touring) and we also attract other notable local guitarists from time to time, such as Gerald Garcia and Alison Bendy.

If anyone has questions about the society feel free to send me a PM or contact the secretary (whose details are on the website).
