Austin Classical Guitar – South Austin Community Ensemble

Registration for the Spring 2024 semester is now open.

The ACG South Austin Community Ensemble will offer a welcoming environment for adults to make music with others who share your passion in a location accessible to our South Austin musicians! There are opportunities for players with previous experience, and special rates for current/former AISD teachers and guitar students.

Who is this for?

ACG South Austin Community Ensemble is open by interview to classical guitarists 18 years of age and older. This ensemble is intended for players interested in and capable of performing intermediate and advanced repertoire. Members should have a command of beautiful tone production and reading fluency in multiple positions. Because this is the first season for this ensemble, the ultimate level of the ensemble will be determined by who participates, so please apply!

When and where?

Rehearsals will take place on Wednesdays from 6-7:45pm at the Menchaca Library Branch (5500 Menchaca Rd.), beginning January 31st. This inaugural season will run from February through May 2024.
