Young Composers Documentary Premiere

The premiere of our Young Composers Documentary is scheduled for digital release on Tuesday, April 28 at 5:00 pm! Make sure to pop some popcorn, grab a beverage, and see how new music comes to life right here at the Tucson Symphony Orchestra.

The Tucson Symphony Young Composers Project provides professional composition instruction to students ages 8–18. In its 27th year, this unique program gives young talented students rare access to world-class conductors, composers, and professional musicians. Since its launch in 1993, over 400 pieces by young composers have been created, performed and recorded. This documentary follows four students as their compositions are prepared and performed by the Tucson Symphony Orchestra at the Young Composers Festival.

Even though the Young Composers Project cannot meet physically, class is still in session remotely – see what Young Composers student, José Vargas, has been up to this past month.

Every year the TSO invests up to $600,000 into education programs, including the Young Composers Project. This cannot be done without massive community support. When you donate to our Symphony of Support campaign, know that you are supporting this investment in over 35,000 students and teachers.
