** Stanton’s Staff Selection – 2007 **
Keys: c minor, Eb Major - Meter: 4/4
Rhythms: quarter, 8th, and 16th notes; dotted quarter-8th note pattern; 8th-2 16th note pattern
Teaching Concepts: related major & minor keys, slur vs tongue, staccato, style & tempo changes

Wonderful contrasts in dynamics, style, and tonality (minor vs. major) elicit the mystery and majesty of the northen lights! Beginning with lyrical, exposed lines in individual sections, the piece builds toward the rhythmic full ensemble section. Auxillary percussion (wind chimes, triangle, finger cymbals) adds plenty of color.
