Second annual Syracuse Air Guitar Competition to be held April 14
Central New York Air Guitarists, get ready to rock for the Second Annual Syracuse Air Guitar Competition April 14 at the Red House, 201 South West St., Syracuse. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and competition begins at 8 p.m. The competition is free and open to the public.
All air guitarists in the Greater Central New York area are welcome to strut their stuff—real guitars not permitted—before a panel of Central New York celebrity judges. The winner will gain local fame and admiration and a spot at the U.S. Air Guitar Regional Competition in June, plus funds to support the trip.
Competitors are encouraged to pre-register by emailing Sydney Hutchinson, assistant professor of ethnomusicology in Syracuse University’s College of Arts and Sciences. Competitors must bring to the competition their one-minute songs on a CD. Competition rules are located on the U.S. Air Guitar website. Further information about the Syracuse competition can be found on the Syracuse Air Guitar blog.
The Syracuse Air Guitar competition is produced in association with U.S. Air Guitar and presented by the Department of Art and Music Histories in SU’s College of Arts and Sciences, the Office of the Chancellor, and SU’s Arts Adventure Learning Community. Prizes are provided by The Sound Garden, 310 W. Jefferson St., and Wings Over Syracuse.
