Dreams Of Yesterday

Grade 3.5

String Orchestra Conductor Score & Parts


      Dreams Of Yesterday


This beautiful and nostalgic piece looks to musically illustrate a child moving from a beautiful baby to a maturing young adult. Written from the perspective of a parent witnessing and experiencing their child’s growth, the music offers the listener, as well as the performer, an innocent melody that develops into a fully orchestrated piece. All voices within the ensemble actively help to create this feeling throughout the grade 3+ composition, including an optional percussion part that is designed to enhance the colors of the piece (wind chimes, glockenspiel, tam-tam, and suspended cymbal. The composition ultimately concludes by quoting the original melody and leading the listener to a peaceful place, dreaming of yesterday’s memories. Each set includes three copies of the optional 3rd Violin/Viola T.C., and percussion parts. Duration ca. 4:25. Available in SmartMusic
