Ballad for Brass and Percussion

Grade 11, U32 High School

“This Ballad for Brass and Percussion can be imagined as the soundtrack to a delusional fantasy. The piece depicts a moment that is greatly coveted but can never truly happen. The theme of the piece was arranged many times for a few different ensembles, and will likely make a return as a choral piece, as was originally intended. Influences of the sound include pop and theatrical music. There is no specific image associated with the melody, but attention should be given to how it adapts, which should allow a listener to synthesize a delusion of their own.”
