WHITTIER – It’s a little difficult to follow in the footsteps of an older brother who composed an entire piece for an orchestra at age 12. But Elizabeth Sywulka of Whittier has done just that. At the same age, Elizabeth recently won first prize in the Music Teachers National Association Composition Competition, Southwest Region, for a composition “Gary, the Hunting Tiger,” written for clarinet and cello. “I wanted to be a singer since I was a little girl, but seeing him do so well in composing made me want to sit down at the piano as well,” she said. Elizabeth, a student at East Whittier Middle School, also did not expect to win, after changing her composition from a long and ambitious piece to a more comic composition inspired by her cat Gary Indiana Jones, she said. In the Sywulka family, oldest brother Edward, 21, started composing and winning competitions at age 9 and recently graduated with honors from the music composition department at Biola University. Sister Karissa, 19, a piano and clarinet player, also started winning competitions at age 9 and is now studying music at Biola. And another brother Jonathan, 15, won in the same competition as Elizabeth last year and is now in the honors jazz band and band at California High School. All four children have honed their skills over the years with the help of Sierra Madre-based music teacher Ron Anderson. The young clarinet player and singer has worked hard to be as successful as her three talented siblings, he said. “I’m sure it has been frustrating coming after three who are so exceptional,” he said of Elizabeth. “But it’s obvious she also has a melodic gift. When she sings, she sings her heart out.” Elizabeth plans to compose another piece about her cat Benjamina, to sing in a choir when she gets to high school. Eventually, she wants to be an opera singer. Reyna Sywulka, the children’s mother, sees her children’s success as composers and musicians as a blessing. “It must be a gift from God because neither myself or my husband are that musical,” she said. email@example.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
