On Monday, April 3 at 8 PM at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, the NYU Symphony will present its annual multi-media exhibition of award-winning compositions by students of the NYU Steinhardt Scoring for Film and Multimedia program and animated films created by students of the NYU Tisch Kanbar Institute of Film and Television.
The program will be conducted by Adam Glaser and will also feature Leonard Bernstein’s iconic Symphonic Dances from West Side Story and an opening work by NYU Steinhardt’s Orchestral Composition Competition winner Alex Symcox entitled Beautifully Falling Apart.
Winners of the NYU Steinhardt Film Scoring Competition whose scores will be performed include George Bjorvik, Ko-Wei Chen, Oren Lok, Pru Montin, and Nick Yeutter. The accompanying animated films include Deep Trouble (Corinne Stein), Goodnight Boon (Jeremy Jensen), Moon (Dan Costales), and Ocean Song (Erica Liu).
“This event is an incredibly special one because it not only highlights the individual talents of our students, but it also serves as a potent reminder of how they benefit from being part of a lively and diverse artistic community here at NYU,” said Dr. Ronald Sadoff, chair of the NYU Steinhardt Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions and director of the department’s Film Scoring Program.
The performance is free and open to the public. Tickets available on DAY OF PERFORMANCE ONLY AT THE NYU SKIRBALL BOX OFFICE.
