The Emerging Guitar Talents competition (Talente in afirmare) is organized in Bucharest (Romania) by the non-profit Association “Deschideri spre viitor” which was founded in 2013, aiming to support the development of cultural and artistic education for children, youth and adults.
The competition aims to provide a stimulating framework necessary for young guitar players to express their artistic personality and thus to offer them the opportunity to perform from an early age on a real stage, in front of an objective jury and in direct contact with a large and friendly audience.
The contest brings out an exciting perspective of such an event through the efforts of an enthusiastic team that wants to establish a high standard of efficacy and professionalism.
Emerging Guitar Talents is structured in two distinct sections:
- the Performance section (which includes 3 different age categories for children and adolescents aged between 8 and 19) and
- the Hobby section for the recreational segment where children can participate in the competition according to the grade they are in. The Hobby section also includes a pre-school contest group and an “open” group for competitors aged over 19.
The Hobby section is intended for beginner guitar players (for those studying the guitar in private, in music clubs and in popular art schools or as a secondary instrument in a music school) and for all who love the instrument and devote their free time to musical interpretation as amateurs.
