Student Composer Showcase: Gracie Bangoura

Feb 1, 2016

This month our student composer showcase features Gracie Bangoura, a sixth grader at Lyman C. Hunt Middle School in Burlington.

Gracie says that tunes will come to her during the middle of the day, and she'll write them down to collect and use in songs later. In addition to composing, Gracie enjoys spending time with her friends and baking.

Each month, VPR Classical highlights the work of talented young composers across the region for our Student Composer Showcase

The Student Composer Showcase is produced in collaboration with Music-COMP's online composition mentoring program. Find out more at

The Weather Outside was composed for Music-COMP’s Opus 31 concert and performed in April 2015 at the Chandler Music Hall in Randolph. Performers: Letitia Quante, violin; Jane Kittredge, violin; Elizabeth Reid, viola; Michael Close, cello
