In November I had just completed a new piece for String Quintet entitled "Horizons". This piece came after an extended break from composing. It has my usual rhythmic challenges and it has hints of the bands 2012 marching band show in it as well. I want to thank the "Strung Out" String Quintet in Mr. Holmberg's 4th period for bringing the music to life. They're doing a great job with it!
Members of the quintet are Ashlyn Nelson, Hayley Lange Violin, McKayla Teague Viola, Katie Wall Cello, Leandro Lara Bass.
I heard the quintet practicing in the hallway a few times and they sounded so good I knew I just had to write a piece for them!
