VICTORIA GUITAR SOCIETY

The Victoria Guitar Society is dedicated to furthering and developing the classical guitar. Its aim is to bring the classical guitar into greater public awareness, to reach out to youth and a wider audience, and to encourage local activities and guitar-related teaching by building and expanding community.

The VGS has been active in presenting international artists to the public. It has organized concerts, masterclasses, residencies, and other events in Victoria, and showcased major and emerging players from the Americas, Europe and Asia.

Of special significance is Pepe Romero, who has been a loyal supporter of Victoria and is a guiding force behind its energy. Both Pepe, and his esteemed father, Celedonio Romero, hold honorary doctorates from the University of Victoria.
