Niles West Orchestra Participated in the Collective Composition Project!

Niles West Orchestra students completed an amazing project back in September with Collective Conservatory. During this project, students from the Niles West Orchestra program came together in a non-hierarchical setting to create their own original and impactful piece of music. Through improv and innovative group activities, they strengthened their community and individual voices as they developed their ideas to create a collectively conceived piece of music.

See the recap video here!

Thank you to Dan Trahey and Pete Tashjian from the Collective Conservatory for facilitating the music-making!
