Panthera Pardus

For 10-12 young percussionists


Difficulty: Easy
Duration: 4:00

Notes from the score: Panthera Pardus (the leopard) is a work for young percussion ensembles that, through musical energy and orchestration, attempts to represent the many traits of the animal. As the leopard is noted for its strength, speed, and cunning, the composition uses three distinct sections and moods to musically portray this magnificent animal.

Panthera Pardus was written for and is dedicated to Mark Surovchak and the Belle Vernon Middle School Percussion Ensemble.
