Media artist Jeremy Knight has been collaborating with the Fremont Symphony Orchestra and with talented youth of Fremont on a new multimedia work. For years the Fremont Symphony Orchestra has managed a Young Composers competition for which Fremont students compose and submit original musical works. Winning selections are arranged by a professional composer/arranger for a performance by the orchestra. The 2014 Young Composers have been selected and composer Jeff Beal has created the arrangements.
Jeremy Knight’s Creative Work Fund project takes the Young Composers tradition one step further–creating multi-media works with several of the Young Composers and combining them into a piece, Musical Visions. The finished work will be presented as part of two live performances–the Fremont Symphony Orchestra’s Children’s Concert at Ohlone College’s Epler Gymnasium on March 25, 2014 (10:15 and 11:45 a.m.) and its “A Celebration of Fremont” Concert on March 30, 2014 (7 p.m.) in the Smith Center at Ohlone College.
