High School Marching Percussion

In 2019, I wrote the percussion music for a high school in Iowa. This show, entitled Flood, included musical selections of Harold Arnold’s Over the Rainbow and Paul Simon’s Bridge Over Troubled Waters. The show narrative is about “The Great Flood” and the “Noah’s Ark” story as told in the Bible.

In 2018, Paul Rendon and I composed and arranged this show, entitled It Is Well, 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.
