Dreams You Dare to Dream is a compositional/arranging adventure of the timeless song, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” The opener begins with a minimalistic musical setting, with simple recurring rhythmic and melodic motifs exploring visual and musical ideas based on the fragments of the original song's melody and chord structure. The ballad further develops using lush harmonies leading to a dramatic build that releases into a much anticipated arrival of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in its richest form; set in F major and scored to be full and resonant from top to bottom. The closer takes a more aggressive turn featuring the percussion section and stark contrasts between the original rhythmic motifs. The culmination of the show is a final over-the-top drum corps-style company front recap of the ballad impact!
This is a simplified winds version of the original that can be found here Standard Winds version for Dreams You Dare to Dream.
