a festive overture

Instrumentation: 313(3+alto sax)2 3210 Perc(1) ElGtr Pno Str

Duration: 5'

Zephyr Dance - Ron Levy
00:00 / 00:00

Composed for the Idyllwild Arts Academy's graduating class of 1989, this work's distinctive instrumentation owes to the fact that the Academy — then called Idyllwild School of Music and the Arts (ISOMATA) — was then in its infancy, and the music program still quite small.


The ending chord depicts dusk at the "Grotto": an enchanting spot on Strawberry Creek which every ISOMATA alumnus will remember with special fondness.
