Commissioned by the West Valley Youth Orchestra (under the direction of Mrs. Claire Gordon), this piece is a musical take on what a student's typical school day looks like...with a healthy helping of humor and high-jinks, to boot. Sections to listen for include 1) Brand New Day; 2) Battle of the Locker; 3) Specials; 4) Homework; and 5) Watching the Clock. Dialogue and sound effects should be performed as scored for maximum interest. The piece features solo parts for advanced or guest players.
Sound effects not included. Optional PowerPoint presentation to accompany performance.
