After introducing a well-known theme, the orchestra then performs "variations" of it: a version with 85% of the notes correct; 93% correct; 100% but with poor musicianship; and finally "as perfect as possible." It’s a real eye-opener for parents, community members, and administrators.

This piece is specifically designed for a combined concert with ensembles at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. The Three Knight’s Quest is intended to have flexibility and creativity for each particular performance. You can assign each orchestra “knight” a color based upon school colors. This can be a great opportunity for student input on how to characterize each knight in order to make it more personally applicable to the students themselves.

A dramatic, stately march in three part form with introduction and coda.  While the opening section is in d minor with a pentatonic influence, the middle section begins in lydian mode.  With the martele bowings, the opening section can be compared to the resolve and determination of the Tibetan people.  The legato central section is analogous to their gentleness and kindness.  Dramatic outbursts and col legno bowing add to the effectiveness of the idiomatic composition that also has a modern sound.(5 minutes)

Set in first position and using only notes of the D and G scales, this catchy tune gallops forward with a steady eighth-note ostinato. A quiet interlude evokes scenes of campfires and slow-moving cattle drives before the race begins again. Every section gets melodic material in this spirited tribute to the Wild West.

Two Lyric Pieces is an arrangement of two Edvard Grieg lyric piano pieces. The two contrasting movements, In My Native Country, a somber, reverential homage to his native Norway, and the energetic Spring Dance promote ensemble listening with the ease of first position melodies. The movements are a good introduction to Grieg's folk-inspired mastery.

Sea shanties (or chanteys) were folk songs sung in unison a cappella by sailors to set a rhythm for specific tasks on a ship. Though shanties were very practical, most are very beautiful melodies as well. Chosen for their lyricism, these two expressive songs, Go To Sea Once More and The Banks of Newfoundland, are arranged for string orchestra with flowing phrases and interwoven harmonies that express a love for the sea.

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.
