Ascending to the Skies Above! is perfect for any young ensemble exploring syncopation and expanded harmonies without seeking a longer work. From the composer: “This exhilarating work for young musicians will certainly entertain both performers and audience members alike!”
Ascending to the Skies Above! originally began as a commissioned work for a combined
band and orchestra ensemble in 2019. The debut was such a success that several band
directors approached me after the premiere asking for a version for concert band. Meant to be uplifting and exhilarating, Ascending to the Skies Above! is meant to take the listener on a journey of excitement as they journey through the clouds and into the stars!
