The Creative Spark that Ignites a Composition

with composer Nick Page

The TBE Music Club features Nick Page, musical director of TBE’s Sharim Singers. Nick is an accomplished composer, conductor, and music director. Nick will demonstrate his composing process in a presentation that will include live music demonstrations of how he creates his music, drawing upon parallels between architecture, nature, and music. His talk will really be an exploration of the nature of creativity itself, something to which he has given a great deal of thought.

Nick is the founder and creative director for the Mystic Chorale, a 200-member group that has been performing for 30 years.
