The Guerrilla Composers Guild hosts listening parties, music forums, and performances where musicians and Guerrilla Groupies get together to make good stuff happen. Their true love is their ongoing commissioning project where they work directly with performers to curate a concert of new works by young Bay Area composers.

Anyone who thinks classical music is going the way of the telephone booth needs to be kidnapped by the Guerrilla Composers Guild (GCG) and taken to the Center for New Music holding pen… dozens of new-music lovers crammed into the concert space to hear the evolving group Phonochrome and friends play six new chamber works by as many worthy composers. Almost everyone — performers, composers, and, most significantly, audience members — was apparently under 30. I can now die in peace knowing art music will continue to prosper… Speaking in Early Telephone Booth lingo, my Hat Is Off to all concerned with this Guerrilla enterprise.
