Unbreakable

Combine Nirvana's iconic "Smells Like Teen Spirit", Seitz's Viola Concerto in C minor, and original music to create an arc from anxiety and fear to resilience and strength. Includes full soundscape and sound effects files.

  • Pre-Show - an ambient soundscape draws the audience into the production before the first note is played
  • Darkness Creeps - an angsty, powerful opener, featuring a saxophone (or other woodwind) soloist
  • Retreat - a soft opening leads to a lyrical duet based on Seitz's Viola Concert in C minor, followed by a powerful full ensemble climax
  • Unbreakable - a thrilling closer full of determination and resolve, featuring a snare solo (or section feature) and an exciting conclusion
