The Young Composers Festival marks the culmination of a year of hard work and dedication from the student participants of the Young Composers Project. This event is an opportunity for the student composers to have their original scores performed by the musicians of The Tucson Symphony Orchestra, receive comments from musicians, teachers and Maestro José Luis Gomez, and to present their works to the concert audience for the first time.
Students from the Introductory and Intermediate Classes will have their pieces performed by the String Quintet and Brass Quintet. Following each initial reading, the student composer will make recommendations to the musicians on the performance of their work. Musicians will then perform the work again to be recorded for the students’ personal use.Learn More about the Young Composers Project
