Program Notes

Stealth Cruiser G1 is commanded by Captain Shar Ranz of the Nefarian Alliance, who holds an iron grip of Sol Sector. Captain Ranz and her Crew have realized how the authoritarian Rule of the Nefarian Alliance has made life as they used to know it, no longer. While in dock at Base Zed the crew of the G1 voted unanimously to break from the Alliance and fight for the freedom of their families and friends.

This is the adventure of the Renegade Stealth Cruiser G1.

Performance Notes

This series allows for a VERY large array of performance possibilities. All pieces included in this series are accessible to band programs with as few as four wind players and as many as are available. These pieces are accessible to band programs with varying instrumentation (ex. 11 kids: 1 flute, 1 clarinet, 5 saxes, 1 tuba, and 3 percussion). They can also serve as an ensemble piece for solo and ensemble contests.
