The SGM present this season...
First concert in the PERSON of the SGM: The Duo "les cordes à danser"!
Join U.S. guitarist/composer Thomas Flippin as he discusses the sonic qualities of several arguably great classical guitar compositions and the tools that composers used to create such meaningful works. Through analysis of various classical guitar and non-classical compositions, we can uncover the many ways that composers around the world have employed musical and technical devices to great effect, and also see how that might inform our opinions of what differentiates some works of art from others.
Second concert in the PERSON of the SGM: The Duo LEV!
Praised for his musical intelligence and remarkable technique, the Argentinian guitarist performs a program of Spanish works by CASSADÓ, LLOBET, LÓPEZ, CHAVARRI, PONCE, and SOR.
Dernier concert de la saison!

Second OPEN MIC concert of the season!
We are pleased to announce the results for the SGM youth competition 2021. Congratulations to all participants who were able to demonstrate great qualities of interpretation.
During this concert-lecture, guitarist Pascal Valois will take the audience on a journey through three important periods of the history of one of the most-played string instruments in the world. From the sumptuous and luxuriant Parisian repertoire of the end of the 18th century, to the Viennese repertoire of the 1840s—the veritable swansong of the Romantic guitar—by way of the Italian sonata of the 1820s and its bel canto veneer, through his use of period instruments Pascal Valois will contextualize landmark works illustrating the evolution of the guitar.
Presented by Bourgie Hall in partnership with the Société de guitare de Montréal
