Dear Guitar Friends,
Thanks to everyone who came out for the fabulous festival on May 11th! What a wonderful range of guitar styles, top flight concert artists, events, and ukulele music we had, all of which got great feedback! If you weren’t able to make it, you can see photos and videos of some of things you missed on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CorvallisGuitarSociety/
The next Guitar Society Meeting is Monday June 3rd 7-9PM
Venue: Odd Fellows Hall, Corvallis

The featured concert for this meeting will be the OSU Guitar Ensemble directed by our wonderful local maestro Cameron O’Connor combined with solos and duets by the ensemble members.
The June 3rd meeting will also include our OPEN GUITAR ENSEMBLE SESSION. We will be reviewing some of the music we have played so far this year in anticipation of the winter concert series later on in the year. The music is already posted to the website so check out the scores online (scroll down to see the ensemble scores), download the parts you would like to play and bring them along to the meeting with your guitar and join in! EVERYONE is welcome and the scores include parts suitable for all levels of playing.
