This is a song I wrote in the style of a sea shanty about pirates who fly through a thunder blizzard into space because they love adventure. Once I finish this arrangement, I want to arrange it for TTBB. My number one priority with the piece right now is getting it so that all the parts are within a range so that all the parts can sing it without straining their voices.

A song about pain, suffering, and overcoming. I wrote this song for a story I heard and we are performing it as a chorus in our Spring Concert. It needs to be done around April.

I am composing this song for MMU's Select Chorus to perform at the Spring concert and I need to finish it by March. I will write it so that it can be performed with strings, but that the strings are optional and are only an additional part of the orchestration. I also intend to use the song for the soundtrack of a show I will make in the distant future. It is about having the strength to rise up and fight against something that seems invincible. I will write the lyrics in Latin. Here are several songs that have successfully captured the feeling that I will try to invoke with this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ad5TszNUVYI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GjNX7jcLK0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lq2ANOkfsIA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysusZfArPoI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1rxRm8JDlQ
