High School Marching Percussion
In 2018, Paul Rendon and I composed and arranged this show for a high school in La Palma, CA, using the selections from the hymn It Is Well by Philip Bliss, Vesuvius by Frank Tichelli, and Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova. It pays homage to fire victims from the devastating California wildfires. It begins a beautiful day in sunny Cali, the fire starts, destruction everywhere, properties obliterated, and concludes with triumph as communities band together to rebuild their lives.
