President’s Message 2018-2019
Welcome to the 2018-19 season of the Guitar Society of Toronto!
This season we are privileged to welcome many exciting international artists to our concert stage. Several – such as the Texas Guitar Quartet, our season opener – are making their first-ever appearance in Toronto. Others are making welcome return appearances – including Paraguayan virtuoso Berta Rojas, whose performance here five years ago was one of our most popular and successful concerts.
Berta will be the feature artist at the sixth Toronto Guitar Weekend next April – a wonderful opportunity to spend a few days of total immersion in guitar!
I’m very proud of our concert season – and of all our other activities as well: concerts in schools, sponsored by the Kenneth G. Mills Foundation; the President’s Bursary, which supports outstanding young guitarists; performance and learning opportunities for guitar students of all ages and levels, through our community guitar orchestra and our Café Concerts. Please explore our website to find out more about all the things the Guitar Society does.
I am honoured to be entering my fourth year as President of this venerable organization, one of the oldest and most respected guitar societies in the world. The Guitar Society of Toronto is a not-for-profit organization, and we depend on the generous support of our donors, sponsors and volunteers. We are so grateful; we could not do what we do without them! Please consider becoming involved – Membership, Donor and Volunteer information is here on the web site. Don’t hesitate to contact us – we want to hear from you!
I look forward to sharing the 2018-19 season with you.
Heather Morand Clark,
