This piece was presented as my final project for my Arranging 425 class at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.  The orchestration is a typical marching band scoring featuring Winds, Brass, and Percussion.  Intertwining melodies and dynamic percussion scoring were key points that I strived for in this arrangement.  Part 1 starts with a laggard tempo that pulls the audience into the familiar melody will keeping them on edge.  As the piece continues, the rapid acceleration of the tempo drives the performance into the more complex and sinister sounding Part.2.
