Before writing the piece, Mr. Meyer asked members of the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra to compose original themes of their own. Four of these themes were chosen, and then woven together by the composer. The result is a fascinating and high-spirited overture that explores a myriad of emotions. With brief solos for trombone, trumpet, and violin, this piece is sure to hold the interest of all of your students---after all, it was written with the help of their peers!
