Greetings from the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet!

Make your tax-deductible donation to MGQ count double this Give to the Max Day! If we meet our fundraising goal of $2500, every dollar will be matched, thanks to a generous donor. Funds raised from this year’s Give to the Max Day will make possible an exciting project in the spring of 2023, which will include the following activities:


  • MGQ will present the world premiere of a new work by MN composer AJ Isaacson-Zvidzwa. This five-movement piece will bring to the guitar quartet repertoire a substantial new work by one of Minnesota’s up and coming young BIPOC composers. AJ’s new piece, commissioned by MGQ in 2022, will receive its first performance at Hamline University’s Sundin Hall as part of Sundin’s 2022-2023 concert season. The concert program will also include additional works by American, Argentine, Spanish, and Japanese composers. 









  • The same weekend, MGQ will present a free performance at the Walker Community United Methodist Church in South Minneapolis.



  • Finally, a composer workshop open to the public will be held at Hamline University where the MGQ will play new works by student composers. All concert events and workshops will be video recorded to provide documentation for the composers and performers.


In order to make this exciting and important work possible, we are asking for your support! The costs of commissioning new repertoire, preparing, rehearsing, performing, and organizing community events are not fully supported by concert fees, particularly in these challenging times. We hope you know how important you are to our success, and we look forward to continuing to share our music with you.


We are grateful for your support!
