About Our Society

We are a friendly society for players of the classical guitar who enjoy making music together. Our meetings combine ensemble playing with opportunities for members to give short recitals to a friendly audience.

The music we play covers a wide range of styles and periods, much of it arranged specifically for guitar ensemble by society members.

Playing Standards
Players of all abilities are most welcome, but the ability to read standard music notation is required in order to join in the ensemble pieces.

Music Director and Patron
The society is very fortunate in having the internationally renowned concert guitarist, Raymond Burley as Music Director and Patron. Raymond attends as many society meetings as his busy schedule allows.

The Oxford Guitar Society is member of the Federation of Guitar Societies UK, who keep us updated on the concerns of the guitar world.
