Towards the Light

For winds and percussion


Difficulty: Band Grade 3
Duration: 4:30

Towards The Light was written with an unrelenting optimism towards the return of brighter days, especially after what can seem like a never-ending period of darkness. Composed as a concert closer, it is my hope that the work will inspire both audiences and performers alike to always come back to music when our hearts need a little “pick-me-up.”

Towards the Light was commissioned by the Hampton Township School District for the Hampton Middle School Band, under the direction of Ms. Shannon Shaffer.
