Shades of Purple

Erin Magill

Grade 8, Harwood Union Middle School, Duxbury VT

"This is a piece for flute, clarinet, and viola. It reminded me of the color purple, and each section is a different shade. It starts dark purple, then becomes bright purple, then magenta. The B section is lavender, and then it goes back to the beginning. I different combinations of eighth and sixteenth note rhythms and a minor scale to give this piece an interesting sound."
