The Classical Guitar Ensemble of California State University, Los Angeles, under the direction of guitarist Satik Andriassian, is dedicated to promoting music for multiple guitars and expanding the repertoire of the standard ensemble.
Over the past few years, the ensemble has performed at multiple venues on campus and in 2018 travelled to Europe where they were the resident ensemble at the Fifth Solarino International Guitar Festival in Solarino, Sicily, Italy; and performed at venues in Malta, including the residence of the US Ambassador.
