The University of Rhode Island's Community Guitar Ensemble, hosted by the Community Music Program, is dedicated to bringing opportunities for guitar as a collaborative experience to URI and the South County community. The RICGE (Rhode Island Community Guitar Ensemble) is comprised of amateur and professional acoustic guitarists. The ensemble will give several performances throughout the year. The aim of the ensemble is to bring guitar to the forefront of the community enabling artistic expression and collaboration.
The ensemble is open to any member of any age and ability. Nylon string guitars are preferred but will accept steel string guitars; electric guitars are not allowed in the group. A student must provide their own materials (guitar, foot rest, and possibly music stand). Music will be given at the start of each session. Fee $150.
