The Calcutta Classical Guitar Society was formed in 2009 with a vision to become a leading promoter and supporter of music, in particular classical guitar music.
Over the years, CCGS’s activities have covered a vast spectrum of music and musician related events aimed at bringing international maestros to India, providing a non-partisan performance platform for established as well as upcoming Indian musicians and creating opportunities for learning and showcasing of talent by students. The Society aspires to make music a catalyst of human bonding and community building and provide a viable vocation for musicians.
From 2010, CCGS has been host to the Calcutta International Classical Guitar Festival & Competition, the only classical guitar festival in India and the largest guitar event of its kind in Asia!
Calcutta Classical Guitar Society is a non-profit cultural organisation and registered under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act, to whom donations are exempt under Section 80-G of the Income Tax Act.
