The NYCGO is a performing collective that unites all levels of musicians with a passion for the distinguished heritage of the classical guitar. The Orchestra was established in 2010 by the New York City Classical Guitar Society. It is a welcoming and professionally-run organization dedicated to providing valuable ensemble experience for guitarists of diverse backgrounds, while maintaining musical excellence and a commitment to fostering the creation of new music.
Guitarists in the Orchestra celebrate the instrument's vibrant history while remaining progressive and contemporary through exploring classical music's melding with other genres and styles. Through its New Music Project, the Orchestra has commissioned new works by a wonderfully eclectic roster of respected musicians. Among the commissioned composers are such diverse artists as Emmy-winning composer/guitarist Frederic Hand and B-52s member Pat Irwin. The Orchestra is directed by Jason Sagebiel, a critically acclaimed artist and educator.
