The picture accompanies this article about the classical guitar society she participates in. These classical guitar enthusiasts meet monthly for free group performances, where all members are encouraged to try their hand at performing. The other musicians have been a huge encouragement to my mom, who just started playing classical last year.
A snippet from the article:
The society is loosely organized- members pay no dues and aren't required to play to a certain level. "It's the joy of playing classical guitar music with likedminded people," said Gail DeWolfe of Camarillo, a founding member. "It's just a group that loves classical guitar and that's the only requirement."Way to go, mom!
