Greetings WCGS Members!
Upcoming Special Event: December Lecture Salon and Annual Meeting
We had a great time last year at our December salon, where we all enjoyed the music of guitar virtuoso Celil Refik Kaya who played for us in celebration of our 100th salon. Although this year isn’t quite as awesome a milestone, it is our 10th season, and we decided we’d use that excuse to plan another great event!
Join us Sunday, December 16th at 6 pm for our first WCGS Potluck Lecture Salon, featuring guitarist and founder of Classical Guitar Corner Dr. Simon Powis and luthier David Pace. Simon will be giving a brief lecture on interpreting the music of J.S. Bach, and David will be speaking to us about guitar construction and what brought him to where he is now as a luthier. It should be a lot of fun.
We’ll also be having a potluck dinner with the meeting, so please bring something to share. If you have any questions about what to bring, feel free to send me a message.
Please RSVP for the event by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. While this event is for members only, if you have a significant other or friend who is really interested in attending, please let us know. We would love to have them join us.
Our December salon is coming up on Sunday the 16th at 6 pm (doors open at 5:45). Monthly salons take place at the Church of the Covenant, 503 Duncan Rd, Wilmington, DE 19809. The church is easily accessible from 95 and has ample parking on the street and in a private parking lot. Our meeting will be in the West Room, which is appropriately situated on the West side of the building. Our entrance is in the corner of the building right off the West side of the parking lot (see link).

**Also, if you are coming to the salon, please arrive between 5:45 and 6:00. I will LOCK the door at 6:00 so it is not left open and unattended. If you arrive later than 6:00, please text me at (302) 650-8797 and I will be happy to let you in. Knocking loudly may also work.
The following salon will take place on January 27th. Mark your calendars! The rest of our 2019 schedule will be forthcoming shortly when it’s confirmed.
