To Soar with Eagles

To Soar with Eagles

Series: MusicWorks Grade 3 Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Michael Sweeney

Level: 3

In this dynamic multi-style overture for band, Michael Sweeney opens with stark percussive hits, brass fanfares, and swirling woodwind effects. A fast tempo and long build follows, using non-traditional harmonies and overlapping layers of sound, climaxing with a majestic, soaring statement by the entire ensemble. The slower middle section features a solo flute accompanied by rich sonorities and counterlines. The fast tempo returns initiated by the percussion section and then recurring earlier themes as the pieces drives to a satisfying finish. With variety and pacing, this is a perfect choice for contest or festival. Dur: 5:20
