CGSL Mission Statement

The Classical Guitar Society of Lancaster (PA) provides a forum for students, professional teachers, performers and enthusiasts of the classical guitar. The society is dedicated to sharing the music of the classical guitar and increasing its’ awareness to our community and members through concerts, lectures, masterclasses, monthly meetings and community outreach


Founded in 2013, the Classical Guitar Society of Lancaster was formed to unify classical guitar enthusiasts and professionals in the region.  Forming a classical guitar society in Lancaster, PA was the intention of Ernesto Tamayo, who was committed to teaching classical guitar in Lancaster.  After becoming ill he later passed away in 2014.  The CGSL strives to realize that dream and honor the work of Ernesto as a teacher and performer of the classical guitar. Here is a video of him “meeting” his new custom built guitar in 2009.
