An Incredible View of P.R. 406
From the composer:
When I go to my parents’ home in Central Texas I am always outside taking in the beauty of the land. When I go outside and look around I see beautiful green trees, rolling gentle pastures and yes, cows grazing in the field. This incredible view of my parents’ home provided the inspiration for writing this composition.
This work can serve as a wonderful teaching tool for the Beginning Ensemble to perform and reinforce musical concepts. Depending on your state’s guidelines, this can be used as a festival selection or perfect for a concert anytime of the year. As students perform this musical selection, it will help them implement concepts of balance, blend, contrasting dynamics and varied articulations.
I really hope your ensemble enjoys playing An Incredible View of P.R. 406.
