Program Notes

Adventurers! We need your help! The key to music has been stolen by a time traveling villain named Kronos and we need to return it to save music for all time! You’ll need to pursue him in our time machine called M0Z4R+ to save the day. You pick up the following signals: the Jurassic Period, the Industrial Revolution and the Mesolithic Era. What time will you choose to pursue Kronos and find the key? The choice is up to you!

A Journey in Time is an "interactive musical adventure" for band. The piece includes a narrative presentation that takes the audience through a story where they must vote to decide which path the story and the music will go next during the performance. Inspired by choose your own adventure novels, text-based computer games, and time-traveling tropes, the piece gives audiences and students a unique interactive performance experience.
