On February 12, many enjoyed the LOLHS' production of the Festival of the Bands 2020. It was a wonderful night not only to experience the amazing talents of our students but it was particularly special as it was the world premiere of The Three Miniatures.
Many thanks to Friends of Music for their support which has provided LOLHS the opportunity to be members of a wonderful project called ASPIRE : The Institute for Advancement of Secondary and Primary Instrumental Repertoire Excellence.
The purpose of ASPIRE is to commission well-known composers who have not significantly contributed to the high school and middle school repertoire. Among the first composers to write for the ASPIRE project is William Bolcom.
William Bolcom is an American composer has earned the following awards, National Medal of Arts, Pulitzer Prize, and is a Grammy Award-winner. He has written in many genre chamber, operatic, vocal, choral, cabaret, ragtime, and symphonic music. He joined the faculty of the University of Michigan’s School of Music in 1973, and retired in 2008 after 35 years of teaching. In 2018, nine of Bolcom’s works were premiered around the world to commemorate his 80th birthday.
And now, please enjoy tonight’s WORLD PREMIERE of “Three Miniatures,” by William Bolcom.
