Fun Fridays – Music by Young and Restless Composers at Berklee
April 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Fun Fridays offer a refreshing mid-day break from work to indulge in physical, mental, or creative activity.
Prof. Park will host brand-new music compositions written by her students at Berklee. The pieces include song, orchestral, and piano music in various styles! This session will be a great opportunity to hear new music and see what’s happening in Boston’s vibrant musical place. Please come and show your support for the young and restless composers!
Facilitator: Joo Park, PhD, is a composer and pianist. She seeks to write music that explores the dual nature of existence: simple and complex, obsessive and impulsive, serious and humorous, and tonal and atonal. She wants to create music that combines fascinating musical traditions, such as tonality and counterpoint, with her approach to timbre, chords, fast-changing meters, and texture. She intends to create music that is positive and easy to listen to, and yet intellectual.
Joo is the author of the book Musical Creativity in Composition and Improvisation, published by Springer. Her CD, Passionate Message, published by Silkheart, contains six of her compositions and piano performances. She received a Ph.D in Composition at the University of Minnesota. She is assistant professor of Composition at Berklee College of Music.
