Dark Visions
Kevin Mixon

Dark Visions
An intriguing piece with well-placed dissonance, Kevin Mixon’s Dark Vision truly sets a dark mood to build the tension. This work also incorporates the element of aleatoric, or “chance” music, making this work interesting and unpredictable for students and audiences alike.

Sean O'Loughlin

In ¾ time, Ironclad already has a different feel than most pieces at the beginner level. Aggressive and propelled by its intense rhythmic feel, this is signature Sean O’Loughlin at its finest. Ironclad is especially impressive when used in contest and festival settings.

A Japanese Christmas  
Traditional, arranged by Keiko Yamada

A Japanese Christmas
Keiko Yamada gives us a taste of what some of the more traditional Christmas carols would sound like if they were infused with touches of the folk music from Japan. The Japanese flair added to “The Holly and the Ivy” along with “Bring A Torch, Jeanette Isabella” is simply beautiful. This will be a pleasant surprise for your holiday concert.
