Music by Robert Sheldon
Alfred Concert Band
Depicting the thrill of a hot-air balloon ride, Northwest Rising is yet another concert showstopper from Robert Sheldon. From the excitement of the initial liftoff to the quiet calm of floating in air, to the anticipation of the thrill of landing, this piece will take your band and audience on the musical balloon ride of a lifetime. Woodwind glissandi, refreshing harmonies and driving percussion help make Northwest Rising as fun to perform as it is to listen to. Another winner from Robert Sheldon!
