Amid the Great Displace
Commemorating a landmark event in history, Cory McBride sets out to replicate the awe of the New Madrid Earthquake of February 12, 1812, which affected over 1 million square miles and was powerful enough to change the route of the Mississippi River. Featuring an insistent motive that is supported by intertwined counterpoints, the vigilant beginning leads to a chorale-like middle section, expressing the dismay after the quake, which is soon followed up by an emotionally ending. The piece contains challenges for every instrument and is well-suited for more experienced groups. Amid the Great Displace is a fantastic choice for concert or contest and will be inspiring programming for your students and audiences.
