Chasing Squirrels

“I wanted this song to be happy and kind of lively for trumpet, French horn and xylophone in C major. I named it Chasing Squirrels because the xylophone seems to be the squirrels chasing each other to get food. I made it faster to sound more like the squirrels. I thought about the squirrels I see at the end of my road. There are three of them that always seem to be chasing each other.”
