Open Stage

Guitar Players and Guitar Enthusiasts: SHARE YOUR MUSIC - Perform at the Open Stage!

(some of the participants in the May 11, 2013 Open Stage)

The BCGS is now collaborating with the Baltimore School of Music (BSM) and we have moved the Open Stage evenings to BSM, where participants will play in the beautiful Chapel of the Second Presbyterian Church.

  • September 13, 2017, from 7 to 9 PM
  • November 8, 2017, from 7 to 9 PM
  • January 10, 2018, from 7 to 9 PM
  • March 14, 2018, from 7 to 9 PM
  • May 9, 2018, from 7 to 9 PM

Open Stage evenings are set in a very informal atmosphere with an 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 all are welcome, performers in particular are encouraged to become BCGS member(s).

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 volunteer opportunities with the BCGS.

This is a perfect opportunity for beginners to play elementary pieces in front of an audience, as well as for more experienced players to just have fun sharing their music. 

Admission: Free

Hope we'll see you there!
