Vermont's Journey of the Four Seasons

Jonathan deRoehn

Grade 11, North Country Union High School, Newport, VT

"This piece was inspired by the four seasons of Vermont. Winter is portraying a stormy night that is starting to begin and it continues to build until it has finally ended. Spring shows the call between birds as the sun is showing and it builds like the amount of day light that happens from spring to summer. Summer is a happier part that uses faster rhythms to show that kids are ready to have fun with friends and not worry about school. Fall finishes the piece portraying the autumn leaves and the bright colors and showing how peaceful nature is during the fall weather."
