Piece of Music to be Commissioned
The 7th and 8th grade band at Westwood Middle School will have a unique opportunity to have a piece of music commissioned for them as part of the repertoire that they will prepare for the EWMEA middle school large group festival on March 25th. Commissioning a piece of music means the music will be written specifically for the Westwood Middle School 7th and 8th grade band with our specific instrumentation and individual skill levels in mind. The title for our piece is “Warrior Rising” and is being written by Alex Thode. Alex is a music composition major at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Alex has written for several award winning marching bands as well as solos for his fellow college students. He is very excited to be working with Westwood Middle School both through the process of writing the music and hearing recorded samples to get a composer’s opinion of the piece as it is being rehearsed. This will be a great experience for the Westwood Middle School 7th and 8th grade bands over the next couple of months. “Warrior Rising” will be premiered at our mid-year concert on March 19th at 7:00p.m. See Photo
