Canopy for Percussion Ensemble (7 players)

This piece was commissioned by the Coppell Middle School North Honor Winds, conducted by Jeremy Lindquist for their State Honor Band concert at the 2016 Texas Music Educators Association Convention. The piece is a musical depiction of a rainforest. The main themes come from transcriptions of the birds songs and mating calls of different animals. Using interesting timbres such as Chinese opera gongs and log drums, as well as traditional drums and mallet instruments, this piece can add a nice relaxed texture to a band concert or percussion ensemble showcase.

All music (score and parts) will be delivered as printable PDF files.
