Ensemble Type: 8 trumpets and 8 trombones
Grade Level: Advanced
Composed for the 2019 Strata Festival of New Music Prairie Lily concert. While cruising the South Saskatchewan river aboard the paddle boat, The Prairie Lily, the audience hears three separate groups of brass musicians. The first, a trumpet/trombone duo, the second group two trumpets/two trombones, and the third group five trumpets/five trombones, all playing the same music, but expanded each time. Each group (or movement) blends and connects to the next.
