NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC WORKSHOP FOR YOUNG COMPOSERS

NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC WORKSHOP FOR YOUNG COMPOSERS

Parhelion Trio will present a workshop at Lincoln Center in association with the New York Philharmonic Very Young Composers program.

The New York Philharmonic Very Young Composers (VYC) was developed by noted composer (and former Associate Principal Bass) Jon Deak to answer the question, "what is children's music?" Working with Mr. Deak and Philharmonic Teaching Artists, public school children, with limited musical background, compose their very own music for Philharmonic musicians to play - often for the full Orchestra. Students make every compositional decision and write every note, with Teaching Artists serving as mentors and scribes. VYC demonstrates children's innate creativity, and provides a glimpse of the future of classical music.
