The title of this energetic curtain-raiser comes from a term used to describe a supernova. Supernovas (or supernovae) are exploding stars that can shine one billion times more powerfully than the sun. Most reach their maximum luminosity a few days after they occur, and shine intensely for several weeks before gradually fading from view. At the peak of their brightness, these exploded stars are often luminous enough to outshine an entire galaxy, and may radiate as much energy as the sun would emit over 10 billion years. In the year 1054, Chinese astronomers recorded a fireburst so bright that it was visible during daylight hours. The explosion left behind a pulsar and a huge cloud of gases and dust known as the Crab Nebula, which can still be seen today.
About FJH Young Band
Appropriate for middle school and smaller high school groups. Second clarinets usually stay below the break. Parts are written with more independence, and instrumentation increases slightly. There is still adequate doubling in the lower voices. Grades 2 - 2.5
