This energetic new work is a musical depiction of the Seacoast Century, a 100 mile bike race along the New England coast. A programmatic work, descriptors a re included for each part of the piece to engage students' imagination and dev elop musicality. This is a great work to teach string crossings, legato and st accato bowing, dynamic contrasts, bow placement, lifts and retakes, double sto ps, divisi, balance and blend. All parts contain melodic material and are play able in first position.
