Greek mythology is the source of inspiration for this new piece for young band. A chimera is a fire-breathing monster with a lion's head, a goat's body, and a serpent's tail. Fearsome indeed!! But just as dynamic is this musical tale of valor depicting a warrior knight's epic quest to defeat the beast. Spirited harmonies and energetic rhythms abound, contrasting perfectly with a moving lyrical section.
Concert; Contest/Festival.

    This song Chimera is a pretty fun piece, I guess... at least for the melody parts. This song is way too easy, and the ending is very disappointing.
