In the not so distant future, college applications and job interviewers are sure to ask, “What did you do during the 2020 pandemic?” What if you could answer: “I composed original music!” “I learned how to conduct an orchestra!” “I wrote my own arrangement and produced a recording!” TRYPOsphere! – is a cosmic series of online classes designed to strengthen your musical and media arts skills and have a blast at the same time!

Courses offered for Fall 2020 are:
