Awakening (Flute Choir)
Performing Ensemble: Flute Ensemble
Instrumentation: Piccolo, 8 C Flutes, Alto Flute, Bass Flute, Vibraphone / Percussion. Awakening for flute choir and percussion is an exciting new work commissioned by the South Shore Conservatory Flute Symphony. Full of rhythmic vitality and color, it explores a wide range of flute techniques while at the same time remaining accessible to performers and audience alike. The composer wrote Awakening thinking of the evolvement of a new idea, exploring it and finally incorporating it into one's life. The Nashua Flute Choir choreographed this piece with a ballet group! It is scored for piccolo, 8 C flutes, alto, bass, and vibraphone/percussion.
