PS 261 Young Composers Concert!

On June 2, 2017 PS 261 in Brooklyn, NY held it’s first annual young composers concert! During the school year student’s in Mr. Oppedisano’s 4th grade music class took part in Young Composers & Improvisors Workshop. Every student grappled with the fundamentals of music – melody, harmony, form, rhythm – to create a unique, musical expression. Their compositions were realized through working with the YCIW curriculum, a number of tech tools and the expertise of Mr. O. During the process students worked with the Grammy nominated Metropolis Ensemble to have their piece performed by professional musicians. Congratulations to Mr. O and all of the student composers on their hard work throughout the year that led to this fantastic concert!
