Program Notes

The tropical island volcano, known to the natives as Thunder Mountain, has lain dormant for years. Superstition has it that the last time Thunder Mountain erupted was when outside explorers trespassed on its sacred slopes. Now, as an unaware party of adventurous researchers work atop the legendary mountain, it begins to shake with pre-eruption tremors! Amid seething smoke and simmering magma, the party races to safety. Will they make it down the mountain in time? You be the judge.

Performance Notes

With homogeneous instrument use, there will be crossed voices, so be sure that students adjust dynamics so the melody is always heard. In an effort to support completely flexible instrumentation, the following editorial accommodations are included to address potential Challenges.

Where appropriate, some parts may have multiple notes. However, they will not be marked div. When this occurs, assign the most appropriate notes for your students.
