Roar is a high energy percussion sextet that features smaller than average instrumentation. In fact, the title comes from wanting to scream after spending twenty minutes setting up the instruments to play a three minute piece! Melodies created by the temple blocks and concert toms weave through intertwined rhythmic grooves created by the composite rhythms of each player. Only at key spots does the ensemble play rhythms in unison. A metric modulation and a piu mosso at the end add to the excitement. This would be a great concert opener for a high school or college percussion ensemble.
