Family Show, Diversity and Inclusion, demonstrates some of the many ways that music connects us.
The Audience at the Family show will be able to hear the first two winners of Symphony New Brunswick’s Emerging Artist Composition Competition.
There has been some fantastic response to the composition competition and “emerging” Compositions will be heard in several of the upcoming shows in this season and in the next. “The young composers have written short pieces for a small orchestra and this makes it possible to insert the compositions into our regular concerts” says General Manager Jennifer Grant “We hope that this helps emerging composers along their paths to a broader National audience.”
The first compositions are by Sasha Leger with a piece titled “Glacial Waltz” and Anthony Gath with a piece called “Blue”. Each composer has written for a Chamber sized group. “The size as well as the content fits into the theme of the Family Show perfectly. We are thrilled to be able to start including and encouraging local NB composition talent in our concerts.”
