Enduring the Storm was a piece that Lucas Shogren was commissioned to write for the West Des Moines 5th grade orchestra in 2013. The piece is all about preparing for a storm that is about to hit. This piece has a very heroic melody that each section gets a chance to be featured. Based in the key of A minor, students will really get to focus on F and C naturals on their instruments.
