With One Courageous Voice

With One Courageous Voice

Gr. 2.5

With One Courageous Voice (2019) is an expressive and uplifting selection that honors the democratic process, and those who participate in it – both past and present – whether through voting, serving, or even drafting the founding documents which make our democracies what they are today. The music invokes ideas of compromise, self-reflection, history and duty. An introspective and uplifting work for the developing band!

The Builder

The Builder

Gr. 2

The Builder (2019) is a dedication to the creative process and to those who create - whatever that might be - from idea, to construction to the unveiling of the creation. Hammering, metallic sounds evoke working with something physical - perhaps some kind of flying machine. After many hours toiling, brainstorming and incubating in the workshop, the inventor finally lets their creation fly.
