Concert  poster

Welcome to the Cambridge Guitar Orchestra website. CGO was originally established in 1991 by Lorraine Eastwood and the late Chris Kilvington. We perform regularly in Cambridge and have given concerts elsewhere in the UK. The Orchestra has been a prize-winner at the National Guitar Orchestra Competition on several occasions.

Our good friend, Derek Hasted of the Hampshire Guitar Orchestra said of us in 2001 "CGO are very good! Their tone was quite unlike any other ensemble I've heard."

Our Musical Director is Peter Rueffer. We have approximately 20 members and welcome prospective members with suitable experience.


Maximo Diego Pujol will be visiting Cambridge (and the CGO) in October 2016 as part of his European tour. For more details, click here, or email pujolcambridge@gmail.com


We are still looking for one or two good guitarists to strengthen our "front-line" lead players and make a significant contribution to the development of CGO.

If you play guitar to at least Grade 6-8 standard, have good ensemble experience, enjoy playing with others and are willing to make the commitment, or if you know someone who might be interested, do please Contact Us.

As you will be aware, CGO is one of the leading guitar orchestras and has built an enviable reputation for excellence.
