and Joplin’s The Cascades (A Rag)
, and several original compositions written for the group by Alan Leech. These original compositions will include A Cretaceous Zoo
originally written for and presented at the Museum of the Rockies and Sun-Dappled Riverflow
- a recent composition that is a picture in sound of flowing water with sparkles from the sun on the rippling surface. Alan Leech
is a long-time member of the orchestra recently celebrating 46 seasons with the organization.
