Student-Led Composition Showcase to Take Place March 17
Lee University School of Music will present its Composition Showcase on Friday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.
The Composition Showcase is a student-led concert that will feature music by student composers with different levels of experience. The show is sponsored by the Composers’ Forum, a student-run organization at Lee that seeks to foster creativity and camaraderie among student composers and songwriters.
“It is a good opportunity for students to premiere new works and hear what other students are doing,” said Dr. John Wykoff, professor of music theory and composition at Lee.
The event promotes new student works and provides students with an opportunity to experience sourcing their own performers, leading rehearsals, and hearing their own pieces in a live setting.
“This is one of our club’s largest events and one of the only ones that gives us the opportunity to play our music live,” says Anaka Schmitt and Madi Fowler, senior music majors and co-presidents of the Composers’ Forum. “It’s a great way to get our music out there, plus it’s just pretty fun to work with other people and hear our stuff outside of a notational software.”
This concert is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.
