Flames and Fireflies
13 or more players – Easy. Performance time 1 minute 20 seconds.
Flames and Fireflies was composed as an opener for a school’s major presentation evening in very a large venue. It is splashy and exciting! The descending chromatic scale is intended to represent cascading church bells and the main theme both give a nod to Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. There is a great range of difficulty levels in order to cater to gifted students as well as students with less experience. Play this with great energy and forward momentum.
