The Ottawa Guitar Society is an organization of classical guitar enthusiasts and players. It was originally formed in the late 60’s in Ottawa and has presented many years of world class guitar concerts and functions for its members. Unfortunately, the OGS became somewhat inactive in the mid to late 90’s due to lowered membership and interest.

In of March 2004, a dedicated group of guitar professionals, students and enthusiasts started to reform the society. These include some of the most prominent professional guitarists in the Outaouais area as well as serious students of the guitar.

There is an excellent base of interested people here in Ottawa, and working together we believe we can make the reformed guitar society a great success.

Everyone interested in the guitar is welcome, from the enthusiast, to the beginner, to the professional concert artist.

It is our goal to unite our community in friendship so that the beauty, richness and fun of the guitar can be experienced by all. We will be hosting concerts, member events and outreach programs including a student guitar orchestra that any aspiring guitarist may apply to join.

If you were a veteran member of the old Ottawa guitar society, or this is a brand new interest for you, we hope you will want to be involved.
