That Day of Great Power (2014)
For Trombone Quintet
Partial premiere scheduled for September 29, 2014 in Katzin Hall at Arizona State University.
The title That Day of Great Power is taken from a portion of a quote from the book Supergods by Grant Morrison.
We've always known we'd eventually be called upon to open our shirts and save
the day, and the superhero was a crude, hopeful attempt to talk about how we
all might feel on that day of great power, and great responsibility.
The work is a programmatic respresentation of someone donning that great responsibility and using their great power for the good of man.
