Episode Description:

Students get a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of ''george WASHINGTON,'' a new orchestral work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Roger Reynolds. His composition utilizes orchestra, multiscreen video, electronic sounds, and three narrators to explore George Washington in a unique way, showing the first president at different stages in his life. This large-scale work by Reynolds, visual designer Ross Karre, computer musician Jaime Oliver, and performance audio engineer Josef Kucera draws from many academic disciplines including music, history, language arts, science, math, and technology.

In October 2013, the National Symphony Orchestra premiered the multimedia composition,under the direction of Christoph Eschenbach.

''george WASHINGTON'' was co-commissioned by Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, the University of California Washington Center, and the National Symphony Orchestra.
