Local composer's performance rescheduled for tonight

He had to wait an extra week, but Bainbridge Island teen Webster Gadbois will finally get to experience the thrill of his music filling the auditorium at Seattle's Benaroya Hall.

A musical composition written by Gadbois will be performed by the Seattle Symphony tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall.

Gadbois, a 15-year-old sophomore, is one of 10 teen composers whose work was chosen for "Young Composers: A Concert of World Premieres." Gadbois was selected to be featured as part of a night celebrating local up-and-coming composers.

The performance originally scheduled for May 1 was postponed following concerns of possible violence during the May Day protests.

After warnings from the city of Seattle about potential trouble, the Seattle Symphony postponed the May 1 performance.
