Monsoon (2015) – for Concert Band (Grade 1.5)

My latest composition went from blank page to engraved score and parts in a weekend. I was inspired by the monsoons that occur in the southwest U.S., where I now live and teach. The contrasting sections (modal/minor and major) contrast the power and the beauty of the intense storms which sweep Arizona in the late summer. Enjoy!
