Imagine a band far off in the distance marching towards you - the music, soft at first, becomes louder and louder, the red capes of the band swaying in the wind, getting closer and closer. It was this image that inspired Flying Colors. This work starts very softly with a distant snare drum beat. The trumpeters enter quietly with the melody, and with each new melodic entry the music grows and intensifies to a roaring finish. This is a fresh, new take on a march and is sure to please players and audiences alike!
