Composition Collaboration: Phase II
Last Friday, five students from the Dudamel Orchestra visited the studio of Michael Gandolfi to continue their work on a composition project which will culminate in a joint performance with the Landmarks Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Gandolfi showed them where and how he works. They marveled at his custom computer, built for composing large scores and were able to each compose (and play back) a measure themselves using special software called Finale.
Mr. Gandolfi will make several more visits to the school to meet with the group and then to present the piece to the orchestra in March so they can begin rehearsals. The LSO chronicles this exciting project on their blog.
