"Kaboom!" is an aggressive work for young band that is sure to capture the incredible energy and passion of young musicians. It begins with an explosion of sound and power. The tension then subsides before building to a thunderous climax of driving rhythms and contemporary, fresh sounding harmonies. Memorable melodic themes, stark musical contrasts and the dark, foreboding middle section will make this work a favorite for concert and festival use. This is the type of piece your students will love to rehearse, and it's sure to be the hit of any concert!
