A concert piece with eight improvisational sections for concert band, tuned water glasses, and amplified voice. An Introduction to the Moon combines two distinctly different and wholly essential musical practices - music of the page and music of the ear. The work alternates between music that is written and music that is improvised. The improvisational sections include different poems, one per section with the instruments improvising along with the reader. This work provides high school students a wonderful opportunity to develop and demonstrate their improvisational skills.
