The Boston Guitar Orchestra is a community based amateur ensemble that is committed to the promotion of the arts in the New England area through the performance and creation of works for guitar ensemble. Its member roster makes the BGO one of the largest orchestras of its kind world-wide. Its members range in all levels, styles, and ages. The orchestra setup includes sections divided up into 4 to 8 parts with multiple players on each part, and the diverse mosaic of dynamic, color, timbre, and other various percussive effects that can be created can rival most symphony orchestras.
Formed in 2009 by Scott Borg for the Boston Classical Guitar Society's "Festival 21", the Boston Guitar Orchestra garnered praise from the Boston guitar community and is now a center piece of the Boston Classical Guitar Society’s performance season.
The Hingham Library and the Boston Classical Guitar Society gratefully acknowledge the support of Coastal Heritage Back for these concerts.
