PRAYER AND CELEBRATION

 

(5:00) Full Orchestra (Double Winds), features English Horn Solo. Rental Fee: Orchestra Score, Set of Parts. Copyright 2005, Brent Michael Davids.

 

PRAYER AND CELEBRATION is a new version of the final two movements of "Powwow Symphony" rewritten especially for Garrison Keillor and A Prairie Home Companion's "thanksgiving" show broadcast from Indiana in November 2005. "Prayer and Celebration" features a prayerful solo by the English horn, and a "skip dance song" as a final celebration performed by the full orchestra. A powerful mix of both the orchestral tradition and Indigenous life, "Powwow Symphony" introduces orchestra music to Indian audiences in a familiar way, and brings an understanding of the powwow to audiences already familiar with orchestra music.
