LA Phil performs piece by alumnus and former Thornton Composition program faculty member Andrew Norman
The LA Phil will perform Play: Level 1, a work by USC Thornton alumnus and former composition program faculty member Andrew Norman, on April 23 and 24. This pair of concerts is part of the LA Phil’s Gen X Festival, a series that takes a “multidisciplinary, multi-genre look at the slackers, hackers and latch-key kids who were born analog and became digital.”
Norman has twice been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. He was Musical America’s 2017 Composer of the Year and won the 2017 Grawemeyer Award for music composition. He currently serves as the director of the LA Phil’s Composer Fellowship Program for high school composers.
