The Bloomingdale School of Music (BSM) is pleased to present its annual student composing project, Album for the Young (A4TY) in recital.
The A4TY Student New Music Project at BSM encourages students (ages 7-17) to compose new music and commissions professional composers to write original works for its students. The program will include the premiere of a new work by composer, Beata Moon, which will be named by the students and performed by the BSM MAP Brass Quintet along with BSM faculty and Assistant Director, Brandon Vazquez. The program will feature more than 30 student compositions, divided over two concerts, ranging from solo works for piano, violin or cello, to works for small chamber ensembles of strings or mixed wind, strings, brass and percussion groups.
The A4TY Project now in its 14th season, begins with a school-wide call for scores followed by composition workshops led by teaching artists from the NY Philharmonic's Very Young Composers program, in partnership with BSM teaching artists. For 53 years Bloomingdale School of Music has served more than 80,000 children and adults through group classes, private instruction, and performance opportunities. For more info: www.bsmny.org
