The vision of Guitar Houston is to bring together people that love classical guitar and its historical relatives such as the lute and the early romantic guitar in a friendly environment that supports amateur and professional players. Guitar Houston sponsors concerts and master-classes of well known guitarists.
In addition Guitar Houston supports worthy and talented developing artists at the beginning of their careers through free concerts and community outreach programs. Our monthly public meetings feature lectures, live performances, and activities for players of various interests and skill level and a social hour. Guitar Houston is a non-profit organization open to all players and aficionados.

Why not call this a guitar society?
Certainly one can think of Guitar Houston as a guitar society, however, the founders felt the word “society” is sometimes confused as meaning “exclusive” or “academic”. We want guitarists and music lovers to have fun, learn about the guitar, hear it performed and have a chance to perform in a non-threatening environment.

Guitar Houston provides the greater Houston area with cultural enrichment. Members benefit from opportunities to perform, learn from each other and share ideas. The community benefits include fine arts cultural education, and our outreach program which included volunteer performances at nursing homes, schools, and other public forums.

Guitar Houston is an official class C(3) non-profit organization registered with the I.R.S., And a non-profit corporation in the state of Texas. Guitar Houston operates via an elected 12-member Board of Directors subject to by-laws registered in the state of Texas. Check with your tax adviser to determine if your contributions may be tax deductible. Our operating expenses such as concert artists and production fees, printing, computer/internet, and meeting materials are based on your contributions. Memberships dues are critical to future success.

There are also committee positions available for volunteers.
