Westview, Longs Peak middle school students to debut original piece of music

On Feb. 22, Longmont middle school students will be the first people to play an original piece of music inspired by education activist Malala Yousafzai.

Westview Middle School Band Director Nicole Kmoch reached out to Colorado Springs-based composer Erin Paton Pierce to ask if Pierce could compose an original piece of music for Westview and Longs Peak middle school students.

Pierce agreed and composed an original piece of music for the students to perform titled "When the World is Silent (Even One Voice Becomes Powerful)," inspired by Yousafzai's story.

The 7 p.m. concert at Longmont High School on Feb. 22 is free and open to the public.
