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.
