Tevan Goldberg, a sophomore at Astoria High School and son of Bob Goldberg and Nancy Stevens of Astoria, was recently accepted at Interlochen Arts Academy boarding school in Michigan. He will study music composition, piano, and college preparatory academics during his junior and senior years.
Shortly after being accepted, the school presented him with a financial aid award. After attending the schools summer arts camp in 2011, he became interested in applying for the year-long program. At the camp, he studied music composition with composers John Mackey, Tan Dun, William Cooper, Edward Knight and Libby Larsen, and wrote seven pieces performed by other students over the course of six weeks.
In Astoria, he studies piano with local teacher Alexandra Myers, and previously studied with Jennifer Goodenberger. He also is the pianist at Seaside Methodist Church and accompanies choirs at AHS.
Goldberg will give a solo piano recital at 4 p.m. June 10 at Peace Lutheran Church, 565 12th St. in Astoria.
