KHS student Elijah Rayman’s music compositions chosen by the Virginia Music Educators Association
Elijah Rayman’s music compositions will be featured at the Virginia Music Educators Association (VMEA) Conference in Norfolk, VA. A junior at Kecoughtan High School, Elijah plays alto saxophone in the symphonic, marching, and jazz band, and was in electronic music production last year. As part of the award, Elijah will also be connected with a professional composer and music educator mentor who will discuss his composition and give him feedback on his growing musical voice.
Elijah’s composition, Raining, was written for an electronic music class production project last year. Tip Top March was composed this year. Both were submitted for the 2021 VMEA Composition Festival.
“I would like to offer my congratulations on writing such fantastic music,” said Dr. Brian Coffill, director of instrumental ensembles, Randolph-Macon College.
Elijah’s band director is Mr. Nick Conty. More information about the festival can be found here.
