8th Grader Composes for NY Philharmonic!

Benjamin Araujo has been studying composition as part of the New York Philharmonic's outreach program called "Very Young Composers." It is an after school and weekend program originally started in 1995 that teaches young people about music composition with teaching artists and professional musicians.
 
On January 18th, Benjamin will have the honor of having his latest composition performed by the Philharmonic at David Geffen Hall! Having one of the greatest, most prestigious orchestras in the world perform music that he wrote specifically for them, is an experience and honor that cannot be overstated.
