Academy Award-winning composer Kris Bowers and GRAMMY-winning violinist Charles Yang present "For A Younger Self", with the inspiring young musicians of the American Youth Symphony conducted by Carlos Izcaray. The collaboration is a heartfelt testament to resilience, self-discovery, and empowerment.Bowers, known for his genre-defying compositions, reflects on his musical roots in Los Angeles and the journey that led him from studying piano at school to performing in prestigious venues around the world. Facing challenges of cultural identity and a sense of not belonging in classical music spaces, Bowers found solace in writing film scores, expanding his musical palette and inspiring his artistic evolution. Writing his first orchestral work in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, Bowers infused the concerto with narrative elements, using Yang's violin as the protagonist to explore themes of hope and belonging, rewriting narratives and inspiring young composers to embrace their own unique voice in the world of music.
