The Dark Rebellion was commissioned for Moorhead Minnesota 8th grade orchestra. The Dark Rebellion starts off very mysteriously in the upper strings while the cello and bass sections continue to build the tension until a held fortissimo dissonant note. Immediately following this note, the basses take the orchestra on an epic adventure. This piece fuses rock and classical elements together. This piece is centered in the key of E minor and utilizes some basic shifting in the violin sections. This piece can become a staple piece in your repertoire and has already been performed by numerous orchestra across the United States.
