Beneath the Canopy - Concert Band Music

Catalog: W-792

Price: $80.00


"I’ve always cherished any time spent in the forest. While the mighty and majestic treetops are what I’m drawn to first, I’ve come to enjoy observing and investigating the environment that exists beneath the canopy. It is here where many birds, animals, and insects make their homes; where mushrooms and mosses magically appear; and where visitors to the forest leave footprints on trails."

-Cait Nishimura

Beneath the Canopy is a hopeful, uplifting, and energetic piece for concert band that is meant to evoke a walk through the woods. The layers of melodies and harmonies throughout the piece represent the various levels of the forest, from the ground to the understory and up to the canopy. The colours and textures within the ensemble depict the flora, fauna, and funga of the forest.
