Mr. Smith’s Composition by Gregory Smith
Marriage of Figaro Overture – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Symphony No. 3 – mvt. 3 (excerpt) – Johannes Brahms
Mr. Smith’s Composition takes the audience on a hilarious and educational romp into the mind of Mr. Smith as he composes.
Included in the journey are the many decisions a composer makes. There is also a bout of writer’s block and even a composer’s nightmare. The solution for Mr. Smith’s issues is to invoke the refrain: “so I decided to write what I felt in my heart.” The audience is drawn into the process by helping to choose the final ending by following their hearts as well.
