VPR Classical’s monthly Student Composer Showcase features student composers in our region, and is produced in collaboration with Music-COMP’s online mentoring program. This September we’ll meet Anna Scoppettone, who is entering her senior year at Montpelier High School.
Broadcast Monday, September 7 at 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, September 9 at 8:30 a.m., Friday, September 11 at 4 p.m. and Saturday, September 12 at 9 a.m.
In addition to having a busy senior year ahead, Anna makes time to advocate for the arts in her local school board meetings. "When they think of budget cuts, music the first thing to go. I put that frustration from that issue into my music, and I really want people to take away that the arts are important, and music is so important in kids lives."
Anna's Inverno in tre movimentos was premiered at Opus 30, April 29, 2015 at the Chandler Music Hall, Randolph. Performers are Jane Kittredge, violin; Elizabeth Reid, viola; Michael Close, cello
