Solos in the flute, oboe, alto sax, and trumpet help to paint a picture of this beautiful text:
A MidCentury Martian
In the 1950's, the Russians captured an unsuspecting Martian. In an effort to keep their find TOP SECRET, they decided to house the creature underneath the home of composer, Dimitri Shostakovich. Reminiscent of the composer's style, this whimsical work is the daily life of this MidCentury Martian as he lived in Shostakovich's basement.
"A Spider's March to World Domination"
In My Perfect Place
Star Light, Star Bright
Star Light, Star Bright was inspired by a tune played by nearly every beginning musician in the US: "Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star." The meaning is twofold: It pays tribute to the tune we played as beginners and reminds us that our starting experience is always a star in the night sky to which we can refer to find our way in unprecedented times like these. It is also a reminder of and tribute to the musicians and teachers who played a vital role in our developing as musicians and as people.
