8/22/2008 [Music Education]Nation's Finest Young Talent Take To The Stage at Prestigious Young Musician's Concert
Students, teachers and Yamaha staff took a break from Yamaha Music Camp to pose on the lawn at Biola University in La Mirada, CA on July 25. The camp is an annual three-day event for U.S. students in the Yamaha Music Education System to study with conductors and professional musicians in order to hone their own musical technique.
The Yamaha Music Camp culminated in the exciting Yamaha National Junior Original Concert 2008 where 14 Yamaha Music School students performed their original compositions with the Yamaha Young Musicians Ensemble, under the direction of Vanja Nikolovski. A capacity audience filled Crowell Hall and warmly and enthusiastically received the performances of the students, ages 7-14.
During the camp program, young musicians also attended piano and keyboard ensemble performance clinics, along with improvisation clinics.
Benjamin Brosche, a 14-year-old from Fredericksburg Yamaha Music School in Virginia, performs his composition "Gettin' the Low Down," at the Yamaha Junior Original Concert in La Mirada, California on July 26.
