Composer George S. Clinton

Under the direction of conductor Francisco Noya, the Berklee Contemporary Symphony Orchestra will present its fall concert, featuring works by Berklee Film Scoring chair George S. Clinton, Venezuelan composer Aldemaro Romero, Tatiana Shatkovskaya-Eisenberg, and the premiere of a violin concerto by Kenji Bunch with electric violin superstar Tracy Silverman.

George S. Clinton began his professional musical career as a songwriter, arranger, and session musician in Nashville while earning degrees in music and drama at Middle Tennessee State University. His musical inventiveness and versatility in both orchestral and popular idioms have allowed him to contribute memorable scores to such diverse films as the hit comedy Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and its blockbuster sequels and the hit martial arts fantasy Mortal Kombat and its sequel. 

Aldemaro Romero was a prolific composer considered the creator of the Venezuelan “onda nueva” (“new wave”) genre, derived from the Joropo and Brazilian bossa nova. Kenji Bunch has emerged as one of the most prominent, prolific, and versatile American composers of his generation. More than 40 orchestras in premiere venues on six continents have performed his music. This performance will showcase Tracy Silverman, whose tours internationally to share his groundbreaking work with the six-string electric violin, which defies musical boundaries.
