Our Young Composer Concert invites Austin-area youth ages 12-18 to compose original pieces of music with the guidance of a professional mentor and as part of a collective production team. A professional ensemble then performs student pieces, with the participant work reaching new audiences - such as those listening to KMFA and KUTX.
In March 2017, members of the Hear No Evil ensemble performed pieces written by twelve students for our second annual concert.
For 2018, we are collaborating with Bernstein 100 Austin and 250 other artists to celebrate the life and legacy of Leonard Bernstein. Tetractys will perform the student pieces.
Students selected to participate will receive various benefits for their contributions. The third annual rendition of this concert will take place on March 25, 2018.
Tickets can be purchased here.
