You won't find many works at this grade level that successfully communicate the feelings of calm and grandeur with such striking effect.  The combination of musical percussion, nontraditional effects and sweeping waves of sound create an impressionistic, mature work; and while written to be accessible by young players, it would be very effective for bands at all levels. (2 minutes 45 seconds)

"Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth..." Inspired by the poem High Flight, this work takes musical flight with sweeping woodwinds and mallets soaring above the cinematic melodic statement by brass.  The highly rhythmic melody soars upward to the middle, lyrical section which seems to float effortlessly through the upper reaches of the sky. As the sustained expressive melody reaches its musical apex, it reunites with the opening material for a swift and breathtaking finish.

A memorable old Irish jig called Road to Lisdoonvarna is the basis of this piece for young bands. Beginning lyrically with a simple statement, it gradually adds more instruments as it builds to the sprightly middle section. With the full ensemble playing the tuneful melody and the driving Irish rhythms in the percussion section, you hear all the color and flair that's characteristic of great Irish folk music.

Centrifuge was written for the 2015 Southeastern Louisiana Middle School Band Camp and its director, Paul Frechou. This piece portrays a centrifuge vigorously spinning with no sign of slowing down or stopping. An allegro tempo is used to fuel the drive and impetus throughout this energetic musical depiction of a whirling perpetual motion dynamo. The opening theme is first presented by clarinets playing in their lowest register as the machine starts up and begins to build up speed. Underlying the entire work is a pulsating percussion section which provides the thrust and forward motion along with various syncopated rhythms contributed by the winds.

This spellbinding effect is then broken by a joyous and spirited celebration that unfolds in a delightfully uplifting manner, closing the work in a grand and joyous fashion.

One of the most intriguing mysteries of all times surrounds this fabled body of water in a land rich in legend and lore. Imagine being on the shores of Loch Ness, part of a large group of peasants having a party,  dancing while  accompanied by the tuneful sounds of bagpipes and flutes.  At the height of the revelries, the huge, shadowy shape of the Loch Ness monster rises out of the water, causing everyone to flee in a panic.  After gathering at another location, still on the shore of the loch, the dance begins again.  Another chapter added to the legend as everyone wonders: will they be left in peace or will the monster return?

This programmatic work depicts a dark and intense conflict and conquest of a fierce enemy force. Emphatic brass lines, running woodwind lines and unrelenting percussive parts create the intense atmosphere of the impending clash. The mysterious introduction is given an ominous tone by the dampened pulse of the bass drum, resembling the timbre of a persistent heartbeat. The forces then collide, followed by the defeat of the enemy and a triumphant finish that ends on an assertive and victorious flourish.

The Corridors of Castle Doria is a musical journey through a castle of varied and mysterious corridors. The opening represents standing upon the steps of the castle and being in awe of its size and majesty. The first corridor becomes narrow and somewhat close, moving ever smaller into a virtual crawlspace. The next section represents a dungeon-like corridor, dark, dank and musty, followed by a secret passage. Finally, there appears a long dark corridor that ultimately ends in the Great Hall and then a race to get out of the narrow corridor and outside to safety.

Dark Prophecy begins in an intense, agitated manner that projects ominous portents of danger.  It then transforms into an urgent dance, this time with the original melody played in a savage manner, before settling into a calm, more reflective mood. At this point, long soaring melodies take over, dominating throughout and leading to a moment of triumph at the conclusion of the section.  This feeling is short-lived - the music takes a violent turn with the reappearance of the original thematic material.  The piece then pushes to a fearsome conclusion that seems to pose the question, "Has the prophecy been fulfilled?"
