    Difficulty Level:
  • April 05, 2015 Buy Independence Day

    The end of this piece is almost copy and pasted from the end credits of Independence day. If you would like to perform this, buy Independence Day instead of something that was copy and pasted from it.

    Into the Raging River is truly an outstanding peice! The symphonic band played this peice at ISYM this year and it had to be my favorite selection out of the five chosen. I recommend this peice to advanced/mature bands... more expierenced players will do it justice. I highly recommend...
