My music will be available to 70 or more band students and an estimated 200 or more adults per year for many years. I will attend the premier performance of the piece and can count the number of participants and audience members. I will attend a meet and greet session after the premiere performance.
As a Minnesota composer, this project provided me with the opportunity to directly interact with 890 Minnesotans. There are 45 members of the South Washington County Community Band. They did the initial read through of my composition. There are 46 members of the Minnesota State University Mankato Concert Wind Ensemble. They provided me with a recording of my composition. Most of them are from Minnesota. There are 72 students in the Middleton Band. There are also 800 students and 74 staff at Middleton who are singing the vocal version of my piece. They have been singing it at school assemblies this winter. Without this project, I would not have had the opportunity to interact with these people. In addition, we anticipate another 200+ community members will attend the premier performance of the band piece on March 31 and another 120+ for the premier of the orchestra piece later this spring.
Bradley will compose a piece of beginning-level music for elementary school bands that includes a full score, parts, and a recording of the new piece.
