The GCGA programs and services are made possible through the generosity of many individual and corporate supporters plus revenue from tuition, concert tickets, exhibitors, advertisers and honoraria from private concerts. We extend special thanks for the generous support.
GCGA has advertising collaborations with Ars Lyrica, Houston Chamber Music, Da Camera and Apollo Chamber Players. We trade free advertising with these organizations in concert programs and promote each other on social media. Many of our concert attendees have come through these organizations.
The D’ Addario Foundation has generously provided guitar strings and other merchandise to the Houston Classical Guitar Festival & Competition students and prizes for the winners of the competition.
Strings By Mail has donated prize money for the competition winners and other merchandise for festival registrants.
Local area businesses such as California Pizza Kitchen and Avalon Diner donate a catered lunch for all festival participants and other restaurants such as Enoteca Rossa have donated meals for our guest artists.
Hotels in the area have been generous in giving us special rates for our out-of-town visitors.
