Amber Skies is a uniquely lyrical and moving work at this grade level. Sweet, simple melodies and countermelodies are combined to create a contemplative and sensitive work, while ranges and rhythms are kept manageable so your students can focus on an expressive and musical performance. "Amber Skies" is written in a style that helps ensure a meaningful, emotional, and accessible performance that your students will be proud of. Beautiful!
