Description About the Composer

(Level III) Union - An original composition inspired by the wedding of Romeo and Juliet (part of the University of Northern Colorado's Romeo and Juliet Project). The wedding of Romeo and Juliet had to be a secretive and intimate one because of the long-standing feud between their families. The repetitive 8th-note figure that recurs throughout the piece gives the feeling of excitement that young lovers experience on their wedding day — the butterflies in the stomach. The Friar, stable and grounded, is represented by the bass melody that sings underneath the constant motion above. The star-crossed lovers are too blinded by their love for each other to heed the Friar’s warnings of what might come. Romeo (voiced in this piece by the solo trombone) and Juliet (voiced by the solo alto saxophone) each profess their love, and the music builds to a climax as they are united in marriage. The powerful chords in the trombones and the rhythm section burst forth with joy against the backdrop of the repetitive figure. In that moment, nothing else on earth matters to Romeo and Juliet, and nothing could possibly change the way they feel. The music returns to a place of intimacy, and the piece ends with the newlyweds celebrating their marriage, oblivious of the trouble that awaits them. Solos for trombone 1 and alto 1. The wordless vocals really make this chart extra special. 8 Brass
