Kaleidoscope: My Son's Latest Musical Composition

July 27th, 2018 (06:55 pm)

My son, age 16, recently attended the two-week High School Composition Intensive workshop at the Boston/Berklee Conservatory. Throughout the course of the program, each student composed three new pieces of music, all of which were performed by professional musicians. The final concert included a performance of one piece by each student, ranging from traditional classical fugues to bizarre but creative experimental works. And I could not believe how sophisticated the pieces were!

My son's composition, Kaleidoscope, falls on the traditional classical end of the spectrum. Here is a link to the performance of his piece by a professional string quartet, the Worcester Chamber Music Society.

Bravo to the composer, and to the talented quartet who brought his piece to life!
