This is arguably one of Elliot Del Borgo's finest works. Utilizing narrator throughout, the piece is based on "The New Colossus," the poem written by Emma Lazarus about the Statue of Liberty. Excellent writing for bands at any level and a great opportunity to work with a resident or guest artist. Strongly consider this powerful composition.
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
