Education: Music workshops in schools this week, concert Saturday

On Saturday, the Salisbury Symphony will present a concert entitled “Chasing Light.” Several educational projects related to this concert will take place in area high schools this week prior to the concert.
North Rowan High School choral students will work with Dr. David Hagy, musical director and conductor of the Salisbury Symphony, and Susan Trivette, education director of the Salisbury Symphony, to relate poetry and music improvisation and composition.
Using a poem written by Joseph Schwantner, composer of “Chasing Light …” which will have its North Carolina premiere at the concert, the choral students will create a suite of pieces using improvisation or composition techniques.
The North Carolina premiere of “Chasing Light …” is sponsored by the Ford Made in America program.
Persis Vehar, composer of “City of Light” which will also be performed during the concert, and Dr. Eileen Young, clarinet soloist for the piece, will present a clinic on beginning composition for students in the music programs at Carson High School and West Rowan High School.
The clinic by Vehar and Young is funded by a Mona Lisa Wallace Arts-In-Education Grant.
