The New York Times has launched an editorial package about the top 10 composers. Watch the videos, read the article, and write a feature article. What is writer Anthony Tommasini trying to do with his series of stories? Which composers does he highlight this week and why? For you, what is the most interesting highlight or aspect of each composers? Of the musicians presented this week, how would you rank each?
Because your article is a feature story, you should include more than just the basic elements and facts of a news story. How might you make these composers especially relevant to Hillwood Herald readers? As a musician, what does classical music mean to you?
Remember to include a photo for each composer, as well as captions and research credits.
