Legends of Glory features a majestic theme that weaves through contrasting sections in the key of E minor. As ancient voices recall tales of forgotten glory, a sacred moment of reflection gives way to a stormy battle in the cello and bass sections, building to a victorious key change to A minor. With just a little third position in first violin, it's an accessible and exciting work for developing players!

Ventus is the Latin word for "wind," and this work depicts the beauty and fury of the wind through both E minor and G Major tonalities. Bow articulations range from powerful staccato and lyrical legato to energetic spiccato in the coda section. Dissonance is featured throughout to create a sense of tension and resolution. This triumphant-sounding piece is very approachable and fun to play, with all parts given meaningful contributions throughout.

This wild piece calls for violins and violas to use a one-finger glissando creating a very eerie effect. Cellos will get to strum three-note chords with their thumb while canonic passages make your group work together as never before. Wicked!

In this multi-level arrangement for beginning, intermediate, and advanced orchestras, young students can experience the thrill of Beethoven's original symphony. This abbreviated version is long enough to highlight some of the best moments from the final movement, but short enough to use as a grand finale for any pyramid concert. Optional high-school-level wind and brass parts have been made more accessible and are highly encouraged but not required for performance. A great selection to motivate and inspire young string students.

The music of The Highlander tells the story of loss, remembrance, and celebration. Written as a tribute to a young violist, the viola part remains prominent throughout. Three distinct sections in C major, A minor, and G major offer interest to all sections of the orchestra. Following a stately opening, the lively middle section is based on the Scottish fiddle tune Highlander's Farewell and follows standard repetitions for fiddle tunes (ABABAB form) with increasing excitement and tempo. This melody is bookended by the original opening lament, concluding with an energetic reel that drives the piece to its close.

Both musicians and audience will be captivated by this masterpiece, making it a perfect concert or contest closer for your advancing ensemble.

A lyrical piece for string orchestra inspired by the composer's childhood experience living along the eastern shore of Connecticut. The three sections of this composition represent the towns of New London, Mystic, and Stonington, with a return to New London in the end. Soaring melodies and flowing legato lines provide an excellent opportunity to work on phrasing, tone, and dynamic expression.

You can almost hear the choir in the background as you listen to the sentimentally beautiful Mountain Hymn. The piece is dedicated to the composer's two nieces who came from Mexico to be baptized at a small church near her home in the Ecuadorian highlands. This work will give young musicians practice with lyrical playing and expressive dynamics, all within a piece in D major that falls very easily on young musicians' fingers.
