The Green Mountain Storm

Darius Parker

Grade 5, The Grammar School, Putney, VT

"This piece is for two violins, viola, cello and bass. It's fast and suspenseful. Though I had thought of many different names, and had many challenges to overcome, it was really fun to compose. The part that I had the most fun composing was the bass line. It was the first thing that I composed in the piece; then I built up the rest of the instruments off of that. The last thing I did was to add the dynamics."
