Program Notes

In this original work for wind band, Mike Forbes delivers a tour de force for wind ensemble. The work evokes a musical atmosphere synonymous with superhero film scoring. The energetic six-minute work for grade five brass ensemble could be programmed as an energetic opener of flamboyant closer to any concert.
