Program Notes

Contemporary harmonies and interesting colors are at the center of this innovative work. While well within the ability of young musicians, this piece has an uncharacteristically mature sound that will captivate your audience. After a mesmerizing lyrical opening, percussion begins the savage dance that grows more and more powerful as the piece progresses. Optional percussionists throughout the audience can enhance the entire experience as the dancers continue till utter exhaustion and collapse to the ground

Chant and Savage Dance was commissioned by the Woodland Regional High School Band, Beacon Falls, Connecticut, Patricia Cornett, Director.
