Annette and Josh,

Can't thank the both of you enough! Last night watching the two choirs was so a moving moment. Thanks for all of your hard work that made last night possible.

Take a look at an article from the Copeland House –

We are working with one of their composers to write a piece just for our Wind Ensemble

So Exciting!

New Music Grows in L.A. ...

As part of What's the Score?, Copland House's award-winning composer commissioning program, PETER GOLUB (on podium) conducted a rehearsal of Calabasas High School Band (California) earlier this week of fragments and early sketches of his new work for the ensemble to premiere later this spring. In multiple visits in the coming months, the students will take a parallel journey through the creative process, led by Golub, and acclaimed composer, UCLA Professor and Director of the Sundance Film Music Program. Working with Band Director Joshua Barroll and Copland House's West Coast Education AdvisorPaul Mesches, Golub is guiding students "behind the notes" as they learn about music not merely in its finished state but as the work actually develops. "The students' ears were opened in all kinds of new and unusual ways, and I think they played in ways they may never have expected," Paul reported. "Peter's generosity with the students and ability to describe his creative process were impressive, and Josh's collaborative input was enlightening." Watch this space as the composition continues to grow.

On November 15th, the Advanced Strings from A.C. Stelle visited the CHS Orchestra! The students played for each other, played a piece together and they sounded great. Afterward, the students shared lunch. Love the collaboration!
