Tempest Rising by David Shaffer. Concert band. Young Concert Band. Command Series. Audio recording available separately (items CL.WFR330 & CL.WFR344). Overture. Grade 2.5. Score and set of parts. Composed 2003. Duration 4 minutes, 48 seconds. Published by C.L. Barnhouse (CL.011-3266-00).
Popular composer David Shaffer's new composition for Middle School and Jr. High Bands is full of the bright and forceful rhythms, memorable melodies and tight harmonies that make Shaffer's music so appealing. A great choice for smaller high school bands. Includes multiple percussion parts to keep even the largest percussion section involved and has an impressive slow flowing section that really lets the woodwinds shine. Exceptional choice for any contest or concert performance! CAN'T BE BEAT!

This song is awesome
I love this song 'cause it sounds cool and a bit weird in the beginning. Then it goes soft in the middle and returns to normal. Our 8th grade band played this for our spring concert, district, and state. I was 14 at the time. It was easy to play....
