AMIS Young Composers Competition
In this year's competition, which fielded a very high caliber of creative compositions from all over the world, these ASP students received 2 of the 3 awards given.
You can read the scores of each piece by clicking on their names below, and listen to the recordings of their work. We are very proud of our students, as they excelled in the music program at ASP in both Middle and Upper School, and have continued to represent our school on the international music stage.
Echelon is a descriptive film piece with a definite story, following a pilot on a journey where he gets shot down in enemy territory and abandoned by his squadron. Parachuting into unknown territory, the pilot's trepidation is represented by the chromatic tension in the music that follows the proud militaristic melody at the start.
We hope you celebrate these beautiful compositions with us!
