Zephyr Dance - Ron Levy

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, or 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.
