Up in Flames

This show is a celebration of the beauty, unpredictability, and raw power of fire, presented in 4 distinct movements: Spark, Smoke, Flame Dance, and Inferno. Features original music by Alex Yoder.

  • Spark - a pair of soloists introduce the main theme as the spark grows into a flame
  • Smoke - a smoky latin-inflected opener
  • Fire Dance - the smoke blows away, revealing the mesmerizing dance of the flame. Develops into a massive climax as the fire begins to flare up once more.
  • Inferno - represent the all-consuming power of fire as the field is engulfed in flames (figuratively, of course)

Growth Series

Originally commissioned by the Yorktown High School Band. Clay Arnett, director.
