Beginning this summer, The Boston Conservatory introduces a new two-week High School Composition Intensive for students ages 15-18 who are serious about music composition. Program Director Andy Vores has teamed up with the QX String Quartet to give young composers the opportunity to work with professional musicians and have their pieces played by a professional string quartet.
The two-week High School Composition Intensive runs from July 17-30 and will involve workshops, private composition lessons, concerts and hands-on seminars with QX members. Each student will have his or her piece (or a section of it) workshopped, coached, and rehearsed. The program will culminate in a public concert of the final student compositions.
Space is limited and the extended application deadline is this Friday, May 20. Click here for more information, or watch the short video below.
