Community Engagement

The Tallahassee Classical Guitar Society is focused on Community Engagement through public performance and youth groups, most of which is organized and presented by its subsection, the Classical Guitar Society at FSU. CGS@FSU believes, at its core, that classical music promotes excellence in community, scholarship, and the self.

Leon High School: On the first Friday of every month performers from CGS@FSU go to Leon High School to play for and talk to a few of Ed Prasse’s guitar classes and perform a concert in the auditorium during lunch.

FSU Student Life Center: On the second Thursday of every month performers from FSU go to the Student Life Center Cafe to perform for two to three hours. This provides students with a relaxed environment to listen to the guitar and appreciate the talent of their classmates.
