Original Student Composition

On Friday, June 29th, Harmony Program students premiered their first original composition, alongside musicians of the New York Philharmonic, via Facebook Live. The piece, which they called, “Transitioning,” is a powerful expression of their experiences during the pandemic and represents weeks of collaborative effort learning to develop, write, share, and edit their musical ideas online. We thank Jon Deak, founder of the New York Philharmonic’s Very Young Composers Project, and our team of Harmony Program teaching artists for introducing our students to the art of composition as well as our colleagues in the Philharmonic for performing alongside our budding composers.
