River Beats Concert
August 2 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
You are invited to a free community concert to hear extraordinary original music composed entirely by children and performed by professional musicians.
The composers are campers participating in Coastal Rivers’ two-week River Beats session of Camp Mummichog. During this session, nature exploration provides inspiration for campers to compose original music with Will Healy, an educator affiliated with the New York Philharmonic Young Composers Program. Many of the children have no prior music experience.
Students have full autonomy with their composition. Past pieces have been inspired by natural phenomena such as wind and rain, the behavior of wild creatures, and more, and can be playful in tone, dramatic, majestic, soothing, or even a little scary!
