The Great Music Series

Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra

This years’ Great Music Series will compare and comingle the influential genre of Electronic Dance Music (EDM) to works from the classical canon through the juxtaposition, using the orchestra as a platform. Mr. Cohler is currently exploring collaborative partnerships with influential EDM DJs and producers. EDM works and styles will be compared and contrasted primarily to works from with the minimalist school of orchestral music by composers such as Steve Reich, John Adams and similarly resonant works such as the 4th movement of Sibelius’ 5th Symphony and Stravinsky’s Symphony in C.
