TGS Guitar Competition 2014



In 2013, I was convinced by Mr. Yuichi Imai to organize a concert for his artist, Sachiko Miyashita. I happily accepted as it was a great and fantastic event for me to have such a wonderful audience. I was thinking to arrange it out to be more than just a concert. So, I started set up guitar competition in the afternoon and then the concert in the evening. With assistance from the Thailand Guitar Society, first prize winner will be qualified to the final round of the Asia International Guitar Festival and Competition. This make the competition more interesting to top level players. Thanks to Thailand Guitar Society.

The TGS Guitar Competitions 2014 and 2015 were very successful. Moreover, both winners Chinnawat Themkumkwun and Worrapat Yansupap won first prize in the Asia International Guitar Festival and Competition 2014 and 2015.
Third year,2016, was also another successful year with more sponsors, Visesnut fine instrument case and The Thai Guitar Makers. Thanks to all sponsors, TGS staffs, and Mr. Yuichi Imai.

My 1981 mathematics teacher, assistance professor Chaowalit Soongyai, who is now director of Srinakharinwirot University Prasarnmit Demonstration School Secondary, recently asked me to arrange guitar concert for the school. With pleasure, I offered the director and his music department to have this event in the school. The title has been changed to CGO Guitar Competition. Venue is the school’s Mini Theatre. I love Satit Prasarnmit.

CGO stands for Classic Guitar Orchestra. The orchestra consists of alto, prime, bass, contra bass and chembalo guitars. With variety of sizes and sounds they are perfect combination in terms of dynamic, tone color and special effects. Originally, I was encouraged by Mr. Sumio Kurosawa and Mr. Yuichi Imai to organize the orchestra. They once invited me to attend the JGA guitar festival in Japan. CGO now has 15 members with age range from 18 to 65 years old. Nationalities are Thai, Japanese and Dutch. CGO intends to play concerto and orchestral music. Classical and popular music are also arranged to play.

Shin-Nihon Guitar Ensemble, conducted by Mr. Touru Kobayashi, is invited by Mr. Imai. The group has many more members, but only seven members come this time.
I wish audience enjoy this kind of orchestral music. Hopefully it becomes more and more popular soon.
