The American Composers Orchestra Education Department wraps up its Winter semester of Compose Yourself! with a reading of new student works on Friday January 30th, 1:30-3:30pm at the Yamaha Showroom (689 Fifth Ave., 3rd Fl – entrance on 54th Street).
Compose Yourself! is an opportunity for ambitious high school composers to develop their skills and find their voice through regular classes, readings, and special activities such as attending ACO rehearsals.
Our upcoming reading session will also feature one composer each from Celia Cruz High School for Music in the Bronx, Frank Sinatra HS for the Arts in Queens, and Talent Unlimited HS in Manhattan. This past semester ACO provided each of these schools with introductory composition classes taught by Education Director, Kevin James.
Our many thanks to the Yamaha Corporation for providing us with a beautiful venue for these reading sessions.
