New Committee for 2018/19 After six years of chairing the CGC, Nicole Nijssen has stepped down from the post, resulting in a new look to the committee.
Your committee then, for 2018-19, is as follows:
Chairman, Alastair Gambling
Treasurer, Tony Delaney
Secretary, Geoff Gorringe
Music Curator, Mark Houghton.
Alastair, the incoming chairman, paid tribute to Nicole for the excellent work she has carried out over the past six years. She has been instrumental in organising many events, has raised the standards of performance throughout the circle and increased awareness of the classical guitar in the North West.
Because of the proximity to New Year's day, this year the January meeting will take place on Wednesday January 9th

Born in Hungary but at home in Liverpool, classical guitarists Peter and Zoltán Katona are a force of nature. It’s hard to believe they’ve been performing together for 30 years, but it’s true, and they’ve decided to celebrate Hollywood style, with an evening of music inspired by the movies – from John Williams, Leonard Bernstein and Ennio Morricone right through to Los Lobos and Game of Thrones. They always bring the house down: just watch those fingers fly!
