       Lion Gate was commissioned by Misty Theisen for Mars Hill University Woodwind Choir. The choir is originally for two flute parts, two clarinet parts, and two alto saxophone parts. There are, however, some alternate parts in order to make the choir more flexible depending on the availability of players. 
       The mascot of Mars Hill University is the mountain lion. The mountain lion is an animal found in the Appalachian Mountains area. Statues of lions have typically been found in many ancient and modern architecture guarding the entrances to cities, sacred spaces, museums, and educational establishments. Statues of lions at entrances and gates can be found across the globe from Hattusa, Turkey to New York City. The music in this piece takes a nod at music found in the ancient east to the modern west where the lion guardians are found. 

Flute Extended Techniques:
Jet Whistle: Finger the pitch indicated in the notation. Cover the embouchure hole completely with the lips. Blow using an extreme force of air.
Ch, Ki, Ts, and Za – In a “beat boxing” style, use these syllables as articulation for the pitch indicated in the notation. This will not produce a full tone, but more of a breathy percussive effect.

Alto Saxophone Extended Techniques:
Slap Tonque – Place the surface of the tongue flat against the reed and finger pitch indicated. Quickly pull the tongue off the reed creating a 'slap' as the vacuum is opened.
