This spring, the Newtown High School Music Department will continue a new tradition by presenting the second annual NHS Composers' Concert. The event will take place on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, at 7:00PM in the high school cafetorium, and will feature student work from the school's music theory and music technology programs. With projects ranging from classical-style chorales to contemporary electronic music, the concert will demonstrate our young composers' abilities to merge technique and structure with personal expression. Some works will be performed by the school's New Music Ensemble, a small group of instrumentalists specially assembled for the occasion. "I'm thrilled," says teacher Chris Lee, "to be continuing this new tradition for our student composers, who impress me every year with their creativity and technique."
