Wind Storm Composed by John O'Reilly. For Concert Band. Published by Alfred Publishing Co Inc. (Catalog # 37783, UPC: 038081438306)

In early December 2011, a powerful wind storm passed through Southern California, leaving thousands without electricity and severe damage to many mature trees. Written during this event, this piece uses sharply syncopated rhythms, the key of C minor and prominent percussion to convey the mood that prevailed during the storm. As is always the case, calm, clear weather returned and the lyrical slow section in E-flat major brings that to mind. Accent on Achievement users will recognize the chorale in bars 49 56 as a variation of the B-flat chorale that appears on page 44 of Book 1.
