Young Composers at CIM



f80b/1245171433-oriannawebb.jpgComposer and composition teacher Orianna Webb’s music has been performed by orchestras and chamber groups around the country, and she’s taught in some impressive places (including the Yale School of Music). But this weekend she focuses on the kids. Webb is founder and director of the Cleveland Institute of Music’s Young Composers Program, which teaches teens how to write music. The students have been working with CIM faculty all week, and unveil their scores for flute, cello and piano to CIM’s Mixon Hall (11021 East Blvd., 216.795.5000) in performances at 8 tonight and noon tomorrow. Admission is free. — Michael Gill
