The Low Arc of the Sun

Band

The Low Arc of the Sun is part of the five-work Miniature Suite, commissioned by Kappa Kappa Psi, National Band Fraternity, and Tau Beta Sigma, National Band Sorority for the 2017 national convention. The work is a wistful chorale, evocative of the short, gray days in midwinter, marked by the low path of the sun across the horizon.
