Pleased to announce that “Let Them Soar!” is now available from Bandworks Publications! This new dynamic work for young band celebrates the amazing performances that young musicians are able to produce. It reminds director, student, and audience alike how important opportunities in the performing arts are for young musicians. Bold and energetic themes are contrasted against subtle textures in this triumphant anthem for young band. Important melodic material is shared by every section of the band, and the percussion keeps the momentum of the work moving towards an uplifting conclusion.
A full recording of the work can be found on line as well as a preview of the full score. While listed at the Grade 2 level, bands made up of students in the second year of instrumental music study may find this work to be an excellent fit for their spring concert. My thanks to Dr. Joseph M. Pisano and the Grove City College Symphonic Band for providing the recording on short notice! Finally I extend heartfelt appreciation and admiration for Patrick Burns (founder of Bandworks) who continues to support my works and has given me this chance to publish with Bandworks. Enjoy “Let Them Soar!”, best wishes to you and your students, and I thank you in advance for your support of this music!
