Kalamazoo Classical Guitar is a growing non-profit organization devoted to classical guitar education, outreach, and concerts in the Kalamazoo community. Kalamazoo Classical Guitar was founded by Matt Cosgrove, Dan Mervak, Jonathan Brignall, Ken Tsuchiya, and Haroon Chaudhry. Inspired by Austin Classical Guitar, KCGuitar seeks to promote the presence of classical and acoustic guitar in Kalamazoo. We hold bi-monthly performance meetings where everyone is encouraged to perform. In addition, we host concerts for local and regional talents.
