Basic information
Date of placement

In this TEDx talk, Andrew Seligson discusses the life-changing experience of writing his first symphony. He details how the process of writing music and storytelling helps modern composers to create a space for catharsis and personal growth. Andrew Seligson (he/him/his) is a 1st year MALD student at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. Before joining the Tufts community, he worked in humanitarian response to the Syrian crisis in Jordan, as well as at the United Nations in New York. Andrew is also an avid composer and guitarist, having written and produced three operas, a symphony about Lord of the Rings, and numerous pieces for chamber ensembles. As a guitarist, he has performed in master classes with Tommy Emmanuel, John Knowles, and Guthrie Govan. Most recently, he produced and performed an original opera at the Juilliard School of Music. He very much looks forward to presenting on the art of storytelling through music on the TEDx stage! This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
