The San Francisco Conservatory of Music will welcome classical guitarist Marcin Dylla to its guitar department with a guest faculty appointment during the fall semester of 2016. Dylla, whom The Washington Post describes as “among the most gifted guitarists on the planet,” inaugurates a new faculty artist-in-residence program at SFCM that offers guitar students the extraordinary opportunity to learn from a different artist of international stature for a full semester each fall.
Marcin Dylla is acclaimed for balancing technical mastery with subtle artistry in deeply expressive performances of classic and contemporary works. His career took flight with a string of nineteen first prize victories at international competitions, including a Gold Medal at the 2007 Guitar Foundation of America International Competition. In solo recitals and with major orchestras, Dylla has appeared at venues throughout North America, Europe and Asia, and at virtually every major European and North American guitar festival. He is a professor at the Academy of Music in Kraków and the Academy of Music in Katowice in his native Poland.
