Scott Borg

With a string of international scholarships and awards under his belt, Australian guitarist Scott Borg has been praised as a daring and innovative artist with “enormous facility on the guitar, a fluent technique, who plays with total confidence and professional expertise, panache and artful spontaneity.” As a winner of Artists International, New York Concert Review described his Carnegie Hall Debut as “gracefully presented, and expertly played…each note was purposeful and focused, as was each rest.” His previous engagements have included performances and master-classes throughout the Americas and Asia. His performances have been broadcasted on Australian and American public radio stations, and in 2006 performed at the internationally televised address of President Hu Jintao (People’s Republic of China) to the United States. Currently a candidate in the doctoral program at New England Conservatory under the tutelage of Maestro Eliot Fisk, Borg previously received degrees from Yale University and the Juilliard School. He is currently director and conductor of the Boston GuitarFest Orchestra and is on faculty at the Levine School of Music in Washington DC.
