Ensemble: OrchestraGrade: 2

Dedicated to the Austin High School Symphonic Orchestra in celebration of their invitation to perform at the 62nd annual Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic, Carolyn Vandiver, Conductor.

This programmatic work conveys a sense of extreme joy and happiness. The opening rhythmic ostinato sets the ground work for the recurring C major pentachord melodic motive. A brief pizzicato string section changes the mood of the work and then builds to a rousing conclusion. The piece uses different rhythmic and melodic devices to create a heroic and triumphant work.
