Music Composition Scholarship Winner (2 min. 52 sec.). It was a pleasure to work with Lisa Oman at Composers & Schools in Concert, who also made the Quickening Pollen a success.
Each year, one San Francisco Bay Area high school student wins 5 hours of mentoring sessions with a professional composer plus an ensemble reading of their work by a professional ensemble. Students enter the scholarship contest by submitting a video and a score. The video describes the draft score and the motivation behind the music. Through mentoring sessions with a professional composer, the draft score is developed into an excerpt, a section, or a full piece that is ready for a reading session with a professional ensemble. The composer assists the student with the development of the piece, notation, and print preparation.
The 2017 ensemble was Friction Quartet and advising composer was Belinda Reynolds.
