Mark Your Calendars: June 2
We are excited to announce the 1st annual Spring Concert for the Davis Community Guitar Orchestra (DCGO). As you recall, last year we were funded by the California Arts Council's Artists in Communities Grant, to create a new orchestra in the City of Davis. Well, we have DONE IT!

Michael Silva and Matthew Grasso have been working hard this past year to direct the Level 1 and Level 2 orchestras, respectively. We are so proud of their accomplishments and want to invite you to attend their first concert on June 2, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. at the Melon Ball in Davis.
