Storm Chaser by Kevin Mixon. For string orchestra. Carl Fischer Beginning String Orchestra Series. Grade 1. Score and parts. Published by Carl Fischer (CF.BAS55).
Off in the distance you hear the storm begin, the lightning strike, the thunder roar and then Storm Chaser takes off to dramatically depict a terrible storm! Educator and composer Kevin Mixon gives us a daring and aggressive new piece that includes the sounds of finger snapping as raindrops and thunder. The melody is angular and strong, which the students will love and play brilliantly in a contest or festival setting.
