Open Recitals


Open Recitals provide an opportunity for guitarists of all ages and skill levels to perform for a supportive audience at no cost. Sign up below if you are interested in performing! If you have any questions, please email us at For the 2021-2022 season, we will be offering recitals in three locations: John Carroll University (Eastside), St. Paul’s Church in Westlake (Westside), and virtual recitals (via Zoom).

We encourage performers to invite friends and family to attend these recitals. Please keep in mind that these are not intended to be professional performances, rather are opportunities for wonderful, enthusiastic people who love the guitar to gain valuable performance experience.

For recitals at John Carroll University, please note that although the general campus address is listed as 1 John Carroll Blvd, the recitals are held in the St Francis Chapel. When driving to campus, you can either enter from the main entrance at Warrensville Circle (once you pass the guard gate follow the road to the right and all the way down until it dead ends at the Belvoir lot), or from the Belvoir Rd entrance which leads right into the Belvoir lot. After parking in the Belvoir lot, you’ll enter the building closest to Belvoir Rd, which will say Recreation Complex (or Lombardo Student Center or Natatorium). Enter from the door that faces the parking lot, and follow the hallway to your left until you come to a set of stars that leads down to the chapel.
