Pulitzer Prize Winning Composer Rehearses With High School Band

On April 26, winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize in Music and professor of music at Adelphi University, Paul Moravec, rehearsed his latest work entitled “Change at Jamaica” with the North Shore High School band.

“Change at Jamaica” is a 10-minute instrumental piece representing Moravec’s interpretation of the Long Island Railroad’s sights and sounds. Moravec was commissioned by a consortium of high schools in Nassau County, Long Island, and New York. Eight high schools will be performing his piece at their  spring concerts.

The North Shore band, under the direction of David Soto, will premiere “Change at Jamaica” on Wednesday, May 29 at 7:30 p.m. in the North Shore High School Theatre.
