The Brooklyn Philharmonic has named Christian Davis, AKA Elan Vytal, and Ryan Brown its composer fellows for the 2008-2009 season. Brooklyn Philharmonic’s Composer Mentorship Program provides the opportunity for emerging composers working outside the orchestral medium to bring their sound into the symphonic realm. Fellows will be given open access to all Brooklyn Philharmonic rehearsals and concerts, receive private instruction and feedback from Music Director Christie, and work closely with composer Randall Woolf to create chamber works to be premiered at the Brooklyn Philharmonic’s “Music Off The Walls” series at the Brooklyn Museum. In addition to their chamber works, the fellows, with instruction from Woolf, will also compose a new work for full string ensemble, which will receive a reading by Brooklyn Philharmonic members.
