Alexander Hurvitz, 11, of San Gabriel, Calif., performed an original composition entitled “Sneaky Pranks” at the Yamaha 2014 U.S. National Junior Original Concert on Sunday, June 15, at the Virginia Piper Theater of the Mesa Arts Center in Mesa, Ariz. The company’s Junior Original Concert (JOC) program offers Yamaha Music School students aged 15 or younger the opportunity to perform their own compositions in concerts around the world.
Alexander performed the piano part of the Mozart Violin Sonata, K304 at the 2013 CYT Chamber and Junior Chamber Music LA Division Concerts. He played with a full orchestra at the 2013 Celebration of Young Talent Concerto Concert.
As a composer, Alexander has won the M TAC Composers Today State Contest four years in a row. His piece, “Sneaky Pranks” reflects his love of creating mischief for family members. “It’s great to see the reactions on everyone’s faces … it makes life more fun!”
