Colors of a New Day


About the Music - - -

Originally written for piano, Colors of a New Day was a second round
finalist in the state-wide Project XL arts competition in Indiana. The piece
was also a finalist in the First Frank Ticheli Composition Contest in 2006. It
was arranged for concert band in 2005 and first performed by the Madison
Consolidated High School Concert Band in Madison, IN. Colors of a New
Day was presented by Tim Holtan of the West Point Military Academy Band
as part of the publication Teaching Music Through Performance at the 2008
Midwest Conference.
Colors of a New Day is full of lyrical passages that should set well within
the ranges with which most middle school or high school instrumentalists are
comfortable. The accompaniment provides both a delicate harmonic structure
for the melody and complementary counter-melodic material. For an additional
source of variation the piece utilizes contrasting chamber ensembles, as the
piece is based on just one original melody.
