Off in the distance we hear the storm begin, the thunder roar, and see the the lightning strike as we take off with this dramatic piece, depicting the sounds of a violent thunderstorm. Educator and composer Kevin Mixon gives us a bold new piece that includes the sound of finger snapping (to mimic rain and thunder) to add to the overall effectiveness of this dynamic piece. Students will love the angular, strong melody and will sound great in contest or festival.
