The Guitar Ensemble consists of approximately 12 to 15 classical/acoustic guitarists that range in ability from intermediate to advanced, coming from many diverse musical backgrounds.
The group plays a wide range of musical styles that include the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic and many modern styles such as bossa nova, pop, rock, and avante garde. Led by SCF Music Instructor Rex Willis, an internationally recognized composer, the ensemble has performed premieres of Willis' original works, dedicated to the group, with most of these pieces receiving publication. In addition to playing in local concerts, the ensemble has performed out of town including the Guitar Sarasota Concert Series and in Ybor City/Tampa for the FSMTA Collegiate Convocation. The SCF Guitar Ensemble takes pride in both authentic period performance and in "pushing the envelope" with the unexpected.
Music students enrolled in Guitar Ensemble are encouraged to register in Applied Guitar lessons (MVS) with our distinguished music faculty.
Scholarships are available to all SCF students; you do not need to be a music major to be awarded a music ensemble scholarship.
