Through the Clouds

Channel the beauty and intensity of Mother Nature in this 3 part show exploring the cycle of a thunderstorm. Features original music with a majestic finale that includes an arrangement of True Colors (Cyndi Lauper).

  • Blue Skies - a bright fanfare introduction slowly morphs into a minor mode as the clouds gather and darken
  • The Storm - lightning strikes as the climactic storm appears
  • Rainbow - the clouds part and the sun returns, bringing with it one of nature's most brilliant phenomena: a rainbow!
