We are extremely proud of our first year winner, guitarist Shon Boublil, who is just getting ready to graduate from Berklee College of Music on the 4 year scholarship he won in the competition! Shon has racked up incredible achievements while at Berklee and has performed with some amazing artists including Lee Ritenour and Sonny Landreth. He opened the show for Lee playing solo in 2012 and said it was a great experience. He also opened for Sonny Landreth at Peter’s Player in 2013. Graduation ceremony at Berklee will take place on the May 9th and he has his final recital on April 16th.
Quote from Shon:
“Taking part in 6 String Theory competition and CD was a great honor for me. I’m really proud to be associated with the competition as it has opened up many music opportunities which were nonexistent before. I’m starting my 4th semester at Berklee with a 4 yr scholarship I won in the contest. I have performed solo, in duets on stage with violinists, pianist, singers and with various student jazz bands. I’ve also played my guitar for several student film scoring projects. I’ve played jazz, blues, classical, Latin and ethnic music. The diversity here is simply inspiring and I’m enjoying absorbing it all. Berklee is a lot more than what I imagined it to be.”
