Program Notes

An absolutely stunning piece for young bands that is programmatic in design and hauntingly beautiful in every sense of the word. Your percussionists will enjoy the challenge of providing a myriad of colors to enhance this expressive work while audience members actively participate by creating the sound of falling rain. It should be noted that the technical demands of this composition are crafted so that the wind players will be able to focus on a highly expressive and musical performance.
