Award-winning American composer Oliver Caplan will discuss the process of composing a piece of music, using a specific work (with pre-recorded audio examples) to illustrate the journey from initial concept to first concert performance.
Caplan writes melodies that nourish our souls, offering a voice of hope in an uncertain world. Inspired by the resiliency of the human spirit and beauty of the natural world, his music celebrates stories of social justice, conservation and community. His music performed in over 125 performances nationwide and commissioned by the Atlanta Chamber Players, Bella Piano Trio, Bronx Arts Ensemble, Brookline Symphony Orchestra, Columbia University Wind Ensemble, El Sistema Somerville and New Hampshire Master Chorale, among others.
