Composer to Visit Granger, Students to Premier Original Piece
Granger's music department had commissioned a composer, Brad Ciechomski to write a piece for the 7th grade band. The 7th grade band students and Mr. Ciechomski have collaborated and been in communication via google hang out during the school year. He wrote a piece for the 7th grade band called "City of Lights" based on Aurora being one of the first cities to have electricity.
On Wednesday, May 8 there will be an assembly at 2:00 p.m. for all of the 6th and 7th grade students.
We are going to premier the piece at our concert that evening.
The assembly will be similar to an author visit. He will explain the commission process and how he composes music. The 7th grade band will demonstrate some of these concepts and play "City of Lights" at the assembly.
This will be a very exciting opportunity for our students to learn about how someone writes music and then we will get to hear it in the piece that he wrote for our school.
