Boom and Bust

Brian Balmages
Grade: 2.5

Economies throughout the world experience the cycle of tremendous growth followed by decline as markets “correct themselves” over time. Beginning with engaging, hopeful fanfares, the music showcases a booming economy before becoming more reflective with moments of despair. Dissonance paints a picture of uncertainty, fear and anger before the economy begins to roar once again and optimism is renewed. A triumphant work with significant cross-curricular potential. (5:15)
