Star Above, Shine Brightly

Brian Balmages
Grade: 4

This beautiful ballad for concert band is based on a melody written by the composer's father. Skillfully scored to expose students to more complex harmonies reminiscent of Percy Grainger, this wonderful piece explores chorales, chamber music, and full ensemble writing. An excellent choice for your contest warm-up or change-of-pace concert selection. (4:10)
