The Heart of Iowa Classical Guitar Society (HICGS) was founded in October 2011 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Our mission is to promote classical guitar music and education directly in central Iowa, and more broadly across the state of Iowa.  We sponsor a number of guest artist concerts every year, as well as several concerts and events featuring local classical guitarists.  We have been fortunate enough to bring some of the world's finest classical guitarists to Des Moines to give concerts and offer master classes and clinics.  


Our members and board of directors are made up of professional and amateur guitarists alike.  We exist through membership fees, donations, and concert ticket sales.  All donations made to HICGS are fully tax-deductible.  If you would like to support our efforts, we encourage to join as a member.  Memberships can be sent via PayPal (button below) or by printing, filling out, and mailing this form to the address indicated.  Memberships can also be purchased at any of our concerts, events, or monthly meetings.  Stay up-to-date with HICGS by subscribing to our email list at the bottom of the page.  Follow us on Facebook here.
