Composition Festival 2023!

Tuesday February 28, 2023

On Saturday, February 11th, we held our annual Composition Festival.

Each year, Flourish students have the opportunity to work with their teachers on original compositions. By writing their own songs, students develop and express their creativity, improve reading skills, and improve understanding of theory. In addition, students receive personalized written feedback from our Guest Composer.

This year’s Guest Composer was Dylan Fixmer, a Colorado-based composer, known for his works exploring beauty of the human spirit and nature. He is currently the Composer in Residence at the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra (GPO) ensembles, and film and television. His most recent works are Concerto for Violin: In Memory of Terri Steinberg and String Quintet No. 1.

A total of 35 Flourish students submitted compositions this year! When you walk through Flourish, you can see each of these compositions displayed on the wall. Student performances premiered on YouTube in a compilation video.
