Open Stage - BYOG (Bring Your Own Guitar) - Open Stage
Date: May 02, 2015, 07:00 PM
Location: Hope Presbyterian Church
Length: 3 hours
Open Stage evenings are set in a very informal atmosphere with a very appreciative audience. All levels of classical guitar playing are welcome – players, listeners, ensembles, guitar with other instruments, whatever! You are welcome to bring your guitar to play, or you can just listen to others. While guests are welcome, we encourage anyone who performs to be a BCGS member.
The Open Stage evenings give players and listeners a chance to meet other members and the BCGS Board members. The Board is more than happy to answer any questions on the BCGS activities, such as upcoming concerts, outreach programs, and how to volunteer for the BCGS.
This is a perfect opportunity for beginners to play elementary pieces in front of a hand-clapping audience, as well as for more experienced players to just have fun sharing their music. YOU ARE NEVER READY TO PLAY, SO JUST COME AND DO IT! There is a 10 minute limit per player. After the playing is over, there will be plenty of time to mingle and enjoy refreshments. Players have the opportunity to earn Performance Certificates – a great way to expand your guitar portfolio.
