Scott Borg

Classical Guitarist

With a string of international scholarships and awards under his belt, Augustine Artist 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.” He received his D.M.A from New England Conservatory, an Artist Diploma from Yale University, M.M from the Juilliard School, and a BCA from the University of Wollongong. He has collaborated with musicians from the Metropolitan Opera, Brooklyn Rider, FLUX, members of the New York City Ballet and the Silk Road Ensemble, and has performed at venues as varied as the Kennedy Center to the Westminster Kennel Club ‘Best in Show’. He is a member of the breakthrough trio, The Great Necks, whose debut album reached the top 10 on the Billboard Traditional Classical Charts. He plays an 8 string guitar by Jeff Sigurdson and uses Augustine Regals.
