Moving Performance

Clovis North sophomore Jason Yang and his instructor Michael Chang performed a viola duet that Jason composed himself for attendees at a recent meeting of the Clovis Unified Governing Board. Jason said the composition, titled “Harmony,” was inspired by his joy as a musician to be part of a school and district that supports the performing arts. The piece has three sections that each represent an element of Clovis Unified’s philosophy of mind, body and spirit, and at the end, all three come together in a grand celebration of emotion.

“Harmony results when one is the best they can be in mind, body and spirit,” said Jason, who began playing the viola when he was 9.

Said Superintendent Dr. Eimear O’Brien of the unexpected and moving performance, “When the strains of his composition ended, Jason received a standing ovation, and I got one of those moments to treasure for a lifetime.” (See the December edition of CUSD Today for more on Jason’s performance in Dr. O’Brien’s column.)
