Member Events

Member Events take place on the first Thursday of every month, except where noted. The meetings feature special presentations by a wide variety of guitarists, composers, musicologists, and luthiers, followed by open-mic playing time for members. The open mic provides the opportunity to share music and improve performance skills in a supportive environment. To sign up to play, visit our sign-up page (8 minutes maximum per performer). Member Events are free and open to all NYCCGS members and first-time guests.

Unless otherwise noted, events take place at the Manhattan Theatre Club Creative Studios, located at 311 West 43rd Street (8th floor), between 8th and 9th Ave.
