About the Piece
Sunrise(2010): When Sunrise was written, the current New Music Ensemble had a sporadic mix of instrumentalists, vocalists and levels available. They also needed a piece functional enough to put together to perform at the upcoming spring concerts but was still unique. This was my answer to that need. Any of the parts can be altered or swapped as needed (for example if you want a Bari sax instead of the trombone-just ask the composer for a part). Also, if you do not have a bird whistle, imitating bird calls by whistling may be substituted.
