The first concert of the budding composer, Sterling Maffe, took place on Thursday. The composer conducted the Colony High School Symphonic Band in the premiere of his ninth composition, "Alien Armada."
Jamin Burton, director of instrumental music at Colony High School had been meeting regularly with Maffe, and upon listening to a copy of Planet X decided that the young artist was worth investing in. Burton provided Maffe with resources in learning notation, orchestration, and conducting, playing a key role in the development of Maffe's composition foundation.
