An Appalachian Suite by Michael Braz
Scored for Piccolo, 4 C Flutes, Alto Flute and Bass Flute 

 

For Flute Choir - An Appalachian Suite was commissioned to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Wildacres Flute Retreat in the mountains of North Carolina. Rather than restating existing Appalachian folk material within its three movements, this composition seeks to reflect the daily camaraderie of the camp's participants and staff in such an idyllic setting.

Movements:
Mountain Sunscape
How Good and Pleasant
Frolic

- Mountain Sunscape opens the day, setting a peaceful and hopeful morning mood.
- How Good and Pleasant underscores the close-knit community of performers, utilizing a setting of the Hebrew Hiney Ma Tov
- Frolic celebrates the robust spirit of both friendship and frivolity, joyfully completing the day's activities. 

Duration: 3:30, 3:15, 2:45
