Couching Lion

Erin Magill

Grade 9, Harwood Union High School, Duxbury, VT

"This composition is about climbing Camel's Hump, or The Couching Lion, which is a mountain near where I live. It starts with a look at the mountain, and then tells the story of someone climbing up cheerfully. After hiking through wind and rain to the summit, they head back down again and drive away. It is for clarinet, violin, viola, and cello."
