Frontier Phantoms composed by Deborah Baker Monday. For string orchestra. Orchestra. FJH Developing Strings. Score only. Full set (score and parts) also available: ST6262. Grade 2. Score only. Duration 2 minutes, 30 seconds. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.ST6262S).

This adventure piece includes only those elements that can be accomplished by very young musicians, yet the sequence of these elements makes for a spectacular performance! Beginning with the sounds of distant drumming, the beat grows stronger before moving into a full-blown western saga. Separate themes represent the "frontiersmen" and the warriors before the two collide in battle over shifting tonalities and rising intensity. All instruments use both F and F-sharp, making this an excellent teaching piece as well. Exciting!
