Beyond the Ridge is a piece about entering a new era in one’s life. The work was commissioned by the Canyon Ridge Middle School Honor Band for their performance at The Midwest Clinic in 2014.
The work is a short, punchy fanfare in three parts highlighting each segment of the band. The piece presents a soaring theme in the brass, which is then passed around to the other sections of the band The exultancy you will hear in the music represents the overwhelming joy one feels when entering into an exciting time; the outset of such journeys in life always hold the promise of new and rewarding adventures.
