The Long Beach Middle School chamber orchestra has commissioned a new piece of music composed especially for them. As part of this project, the composer, John Caponegro, visited the middle school to work with the students and their teacher David Lobenstein during a special session on April 10.


“Mr. Caponegro is a renowned composer of orchestral music,” said Lobenstein, “His pieces are performed worldwide. This will be a unique educational experience for all students involved.”


The piece, which is titled “Shadows Across the Moon,” will be performed at the spring concert on May 16 at the middle school.
