Performance Notes

Musicians should be assigned one to a part for the offstage parts. The onstage parts may be doubled, if desired. The 1st and 2nd offstage groups should not be placed in the same offstage area.

From measure 1 through 83, the notes given in the offstage parts are notes to be improvised on for the indicated duration (beginning with the measure showing the chord). Improvising may be done in and between any octave. The general mood for each improvised section may be decided between the offstage musicians and conductor. The dynamics for the offstage musicians are written as they should be heard by the audience, not as they are played.
