In February, the Colorado Symphony launched the Very Young Composers with a pilot program at Cole Arts & Science Academy, a DPS K-5 school in Denver. Through the Very Young Composers, students learn to create original musical works, using expressive tools available to all children. For four months, a team of musicians from the Colorado Symphony worked with 60 third-grade students to create eighteen original works, which were performed for students, teachers, parents and community members during two public performances in May. Works by a select group of young composers were performed on stage prior to concerts at Boettcher Concert Hall.
