Two Schuylerville High School students will have their original compositions performed by a woodwind quartet from the Glens Falls Symphony on Saturday, March 14.
The pieces, composed by Brandon Alling and Alex Malin, were part of a composition contest through the Glens Falls Symphony. Alling and Malin were selected as the two finest student compositions among all the entries received.
The concert is at Skidmore College in the Zankel Performance Hall. The student pieces will be performed as part of the pre-concert talk beginning at 1:25 p.m. Tickets for the event are available from the Glens Falls Symphony Office.
