     "Confined" is based on 3 parts. Being stuck, getting out and being set free. Lot's of opportunity here both visually and musically for total coordination. The use of some props to create a enclosed space is important to set the scene for the first half of the show. The 2nd half of the show shows the sturggles of the journey out of the limitations. The props can start moving here or be knocked down to set the ensemble comepltly free for the triumphant ending! Although not literal, this show idea can emotionally connect with your performers on many levels, through the restrictions of covid, the feeling of graduating, a bad realtionship, etc.

     This show features an arrangement of Erik Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1 (public domain). Mvt 1 features Flute soloist, Mvt 2 a Flute & Mellophone duet and a Trumpet soloist in mvt 3.

     "Confined' was written by Fred Emory Smith and John Mapes. It was originally commissioned for the fall of 2022 and was released for the 2023 season.
