Welcome To The Wichita Guitar Society!

In 1956, Irma Wassall and a small group of guitarists and afficianados got together and formed the Wichita Society of the Classical Guitar. The idea was to present Irma's guitar teacher, Maestro Rey de la Torre, to the Wichita concert stage. This first classical guitar concert in Wichita took place in October of 1956. Many other concerts featuring Rey de la Torre, as well as, Andres Segovia, Oscar Ghiglia, Michael Lorimer and many other great artists would follow, as a result of the society's efforts. Today, that same spirit continues with a broader scope. Wichita Guitar Society, as the group is now known, embraces all styles of music. It actively promotes quality performances in the Wichita area. WGS meets once a month to exchange ideas, perform for each other, plan rehersals, concerts, etc. The meetings include informal recitals and are free to everyone! Newcomers are encouraged to bring a guitar or other similarly stringed instrument, but one doesn't have to play to get involved. Come in and enjoy the music performed by WGS members and friends. Help bring "World Class Performances" back to Wichita.
