This is my first piece for string orchestra. Actually, it's an expansion of a piece I originally wrote for concert band many years ago. Don't know why it didn't occur to me sooner that it was a great match for strings. The first version is GPO, straight out of Finale 2010 - a pretty stiff performance, but as usual it gave me what I needed before turning it loose on humans. Second is the actual live version, performed by a very talented group of high schoolers at a local string camp.
