Spokeswoman Teresa Henley said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has forced the world into lockdowns of varying lengths and severity from March of this year and has changed our lives unimaginably. Since then all those involved in delivering live music have struggled to survive but, due to a deep love of their art, have quickly learned to adapt to keep the flag of music well and truly flying.
“West Sussex Guitar Club has played its role in this by embracing the digital platform. A new vibrant and user friendly website has allowed members to access newsletters, diary of events and videos. A virtual summer party, the annual meet with Dorset Guitar Society and club evenings were made possible by videos of performances given by club members and imaginatively edited by the club's artistic director Sasha Levtov. The standard of playing by adults and children was incredibly high and all have become proficient with the use of technology.
“The club and its committee members would like to invite all music lovers to visit the upcoming events or diary section on our website (westsussexguitar.org) and attend our virtual concert on Saturday November 28, 8.30-10.30pm. This will be given by four exceptionally talented guitarists of the new generation: Laura Snowden, Ioannis Theodoridis, Jonatan Bougt and Sam Brown. The video will remain on YouTube for one month.
“WSGC is a charity which aims to promote the classical guitar to all ages. the committee and club members hope that all music lovers can attend and enjoy the performance. We would welcome any donations so that we can continue to support musicians during this difficult time. These can be made by either clicking on the actual engagement in the diary section of the website or scrolling to the upcoming events on the home page.”
