Composer at Work Posted December 4, 2009 by admin


December 2009…Composer Dr. Michael Larkin rehearses his original composition, “I’ve Dreamed Many Dreams,” during a workshop with members of the Hatboro-Horsham High School Madrigal Choir prior to their performance of the piece, under the direction of HHSD Vocal Music Director William Naydan, as an opening for a concert by the internationally acclaimed Young @ Heart Chorus Dec. 6 at Hatboro-Horsham High School. The piece was among work commissioned through an Innovative Learning Grant from the Hatboro-Horsham Educational Foundation which sponsored the concert by Young @ Heart, a chorus composed of seniors ages 73-88 who perform rock ‘n roll. The Hatboro-Horsham High School Choir also performed Larkin’s music. During the workshop, Larkin made suggestions to the students for improving their understanding of the music and their performance.
