'They Who Hold the Signs' is a Musical Postcard that was composed by 13 year old Mondriana Villegas from Brooklyn, NY. She composed this piece within the Very Young Composers Program, lead by Musical Postcards Advocate Jon Deak. In this composition, she created an answer to the question: 'what does the world sound like, according to you?' She composed a piece in which one can hear many opinions. In her piece, she conveyed people who aren't afraid to speak out in order to spark a change. The piece was performed by Members of The Ney York Philharmonic.
Mondriana's Musical Postcard was sent to Maastricht, where students of The Sint-Maartenscollege composed the Musical Postcard 'Arid Sand,' inspired by Mondriana's piece. They've composed a piece that consists of two parts. In the first part, they try to create someone feels locked up, who cannot express his own ideas or feelings. In the second part they've conveyed someone who's liberated of his limitations. The piece was performed by Members of The South Netherlands Philharmonic.
“Who inspired me, are the people who aren't afraid to share their opinions for the greater good to spark a change."
