The Sudbury Guitar Society is dedicated to celebrating the classical guitar within the community. Its aim is to present international level guitar artistry to the public and to encourage teachers, students and parents to participate in guitar events and engage with other guitar enthusiasts. For the past 12 years, the local annual Guitars Alive concert has hosted community concerts, highlighting performances from Elementary, Secondary and Post-Secondary guitar ensembles. With the success of the Guitars Alive concerts came the formation of the Sudbury Guitar Society. Guitars Alive concerts will continue under the umbrella of the SGS.
