“…we have become, refined.”

Through the years, human culture has always evolved; we have reacted and adapted to new situations, new ideas, and new innovations. Humanity’s artistic outlets have also evolved, and the way we express ourselves through art is constantly shifting.

In “Evolution,” we explore the changes over time that man and music have experienced from Ancient History to the Classical Era to modern time. Musical themes evolve and expand as additional layers of responsibility are incorporated into the ensemble’s efforts. The diverse music can be enhanced via visual evolution of posture, technique and form from the rudimentary basics to advanced modern performance. Written into “Evolution” are opportunities to diversify the instrumentation or voices available within the ensemble’s sound. Potential props include standing drums, backdrops, and lights.

This production was originally written for a strong battery coupled with a more beginner level front ensemble. Additional difficulty versions available on request.

“Evolution” was originally commissioned for Mechanicsburg HS (Mechanicsburg, PA) for the winter of 2018 and was an WGI A Class Finalist.
