junior composer program
What is the Junior Composer Program?
The Endless Mountain Music Festival (EMMF) and the Science & Discovery Center (SDC) are collaborating to develop an educational program for students of all ages in school and college. The purpose of this pilot program is to combine STEM elements with music utilizing technology to guide students in scoring their own inspired compositions. STEM learning, along with computer programming, will play a crucial role in aiding students to score their own compositions.
What does the Junior Composer Program entail?
Students will receive masterclasses from eight Hollywood composers who are scheduled to perform at the 2021 Endless Mountain Music Festival. Educators from the Science & Discovery Center will aid students in using technology to achieve their compositional goals. The eight composers will judge winning entries in each category: elementary school, middle school, high school, and college.
Winning composers, along with their families, will be invited to the 2021 Endless Mountain Music Festival concert on July 17, 2021, at The Corning Museum of Glass to meet and speak with the eight composers. Winning entries will be posted on both the EMMF and SDC websites. For full program details, please view the slides presented below.
