Description:

    "Our lives are on a pathway. This pathway consists of where you've been, where you are and where you're going." Delving into both a literal and figurative meaning, this production explores the pathways of life and how we navigate them. The obstacles we encounter along the way define who we are regardless of which path we travel.  Staying in line with the other shows in the Beg/Int category we wrote tonal harmonies and brass/WW friendly key centers that help to make this score resonate with a younger ensemble. Marrying this wind sonority with some tasty and accessible percussion writing creates a dynamic sound spectrum.

    We like that this idea can be easily represented visually by making pathways on the field with drill design and potentially use large moveable props or other members to create the “obstacles,” but also has a deeper meaning that can be translated to an audience pretty simply through audio/visual coordination.        

     This show was originally commissioned for the fall of 2018 and was released for the 2019 season.

    *Perusal scores are available upon request.
