2019 Show Information

Show Title:The River
Description:The River is a groove-oriented piece by Seth Adams that depicts a trip down New Hampshire’s Ammonoosuc River, known for its beautiful waterfalls and chilly, clear water. The opening, which we'll perform today, portrays a ride down the rocky waters, twisting and turning through a mountainous area. The music shifts to darker tones halfway through the piece, symbolizing a plunge underwater as the journey continues downstream, culminating in a percussive tumble down a rocky waterfall. A restatement of the beginning material follows, suggesting playful eddies and swift currents until the adventure finally slows to a stop at the edge of a quiet pool. This engaging work includes solo opportunities and skillfully exploits the wealth of timbres and techniques available in a percussion ensemble.
