Fire & Ice

A clash between two opposing elemental forces. This show features a mashup of Holst's Mars with the Dies Irae from Verdi's Requiem, as well as Nessun Dorma from Turandot, and the finale to Stravinsky's Firebird. All these are packaged in a short, accessible show without battery percussion required.

  • Clash of Elements - battling themes from Verdi and Holst provide the catalyst for this bombastic and thrilling opener
  • Melting - a chilly opening to Puccini's Nessun Dorma leads to a warm full ensemble climax
  • Flame Rages On - fire takes over for the finale, building into a huge finale from Stravinsky's Firebird

Difficulty: Growth Series
