For the first time ever, Delaware County is getting its own musical composition.
On Sunday, Sept. 22, at Neumann University, the original piece, “The Four Seasons of Delaware County,” will have its world premiere.
The work for violin, cello, flute and piano will be part of the Delaware County Symphony’s first chamber series concert. The work will be performed by Jennifer Nicole Campbell on piano, who also wrote the composition.
The music will capture in mood, music and style the sights, sounds and emotional ambiance of life in Delaware County during the four seasons.
At the conclusion of the chamber concert performance, Campbell will sign and present the original score to Laurie J. Grant, executive director of the Delaware County Historical Society and Board President, The Honorable Linda A. Cartisano.
The document becomes the property of Delaware County to be preserved and archived and the hand-written music will be available to future historians and musical researchers.
The Delaware County Symphony is a charter member of the Arts Guild at Neumann University, formed in 1991 to enhance the cultural programming available to the Delaware Valley community.
Campbell, a Chadds Ford resident, is a classically trained musician born and raised in Delaware County. She studied and graduated from the Peabody Conservatory of Music at the Johns Hopkins University where she earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Piano Performance and Composition.
