Students Perform Original Composition at Holiday Concert

Two Advanced Music Theory students, Peter and Brian, have been learning musical pieces at GFA for years. The Upper School Winter Concert provided them the opportunity to write and perform music of their own. Find a snippet of their work and a reflection from the musicians below:

"We were offered the chance to write additional instrumental accompaniment for the 'Winter Canon' and were thrilled for this opportunity to collaborate with the Upper School choir. We wanted to stay true to the original arrangement while adding elements we thought would enhance the piece. We chose to write for viola and cello because these two instruments are rarely paired together, and they reflect the sense of peace one feels with the canon."
