KINGSTON, R.I., May 1, 2013 – When music composition major Zach Friedland graduates from the University of Rhode Island on May 19, he’ll be playing with the commencement band as it performs High Altitudes; Think Big We Do, the recessional that he composed.


“The fun part for me is it’s about everybody celebrating that day and I get to be a piece of what people will see and hear and remember,” said the 23-year-old from Richmond, R.I., who’s accumulated a lengthy list of accomplishments during his time in Kingston.
