Guitar Auditions

Requirements

After submitting the application, applicants for the Classical Guitar program will be required to select a virtual performance interview time and submit an unedited audiovisual recording fulfilling the repertoire listed below. Movements from multi-movement works may be uploaded as separate video files. The recordings will be due three weeks before the selected virtual performance interview time. There is no prescreening requirement for Classical Guitar applicants.

Repertoire

  • A transcription of a work written before 1750
  • A classical or romantic work (including the Segovia repertoire) written for guitar
  • A 20th-century work written for guitar

 

Virtual Performance Interview Format

All Classical Guitar applicants will perform selections from the Final Audition repertoire for the faculty through Zoom. To ensure sound quality and time, we recommend using a separate microphone rather than computer microphone, and to avoid connectivity issues, please plug directly into a router or be stationed near one. Following the performance, the faculty will conduct a short interview to get to know the applicant.

Applicants with concerns regarding live performance due to technology or space challenges should email apply@sfcm.edu.
