The percussion section powers this dramatic and mysterious composition. Eerie percussion effects and changing instrumental colors heighten the tension, which explodes into a fast-paced, forceful rhythmic romp. The ranges and difficulty of the wind and percussion parts are within the easy level, making this and fun and energizing piece for your middle or junior high band to perform.
