Knoxville Classical Guitar Concert Season and More
KCG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports local and regional guitarists, students, and enthusiasts through performance, production, education, service, and community. We have an incredible year planned! We'd love to have you join us!
KCG has 12 events scheduled for 2020 - 2021, and more to come! (Read More)
There is no doubt 2020 has presented challenges for many individuals and organizations. Knoxville Classical Guitar is still here, and we have attempted to be safe, considerate, and creative while offering our patrons and our community as much as possible. We are excited about this year!
KCG cares about your health and safety during this time, and we are in communication with artists as we update our concert series, potential venues, and health guidelines. We will continue to facilitate live performances and masterclasses given by incredible guitarists. KCG's in-person concerts will begin in January 2021, and we have events starting in September 2020.
In addition to our concert series, we will share monthly conversations and music via a podcast titled Knox Guitar Box! Knox Guitar Box will provide guitar-focused discussions and performances with professional musicians, students, composers, and educators. The first episode of Knox Guitar Box will release September 13, 2020, and the combination of podcasts and concerts has developed into an excellent line-up for this year! Please visit our website for an up-to-date event calendar, as we will add events on-going.
A focus of the KCG team this year is the presentation of guitar music and literature through education and other avenues of service to benefit our local and regional communities. We continually work to develop new, community-based ideas and services. KCG has direct involvement with a guitar program within Knox County Schools at West High School. We are excited as we look to expand this service in the future, and as we research creative avenues to give back to the Knoxville Area and beyond.
Another way we serve our community is by assisting local and regional young guitar students. Knoxville Classical Guitar's new Rising Guitarist Showcase offers young students the opportunity to perform recitals and share their experiences as a featured guest in an episode of Knox Guitar Box. KCG is delighted to be able to give to young guitar students in this fashion.
We would not have the opportunity to offer events and services to anyone without you! We are thankful for past support for KCG. The continued purchase of Season Tickets from KCG and donations aid us as we finance concert artists, award scholarships, support students of the guitar, publish Knox Guitar Box, and research and enhance KCG’s outlook and future services.
Season Tickets offer the holder full-access and choice seating at shows and links to podcasts mailed directly to your email inbox as episodes are released. We've attempted to make it easy to support us. Please visit our website for more information, or to join us as we push forward.
We genuinely appreciate you and look forward to a wonderful year filled with music and guitar. We invite you to join us.
