“...I will be there to greet you in the morning; I’ll be there through the shadows of your day.
So, my child, know that I am with you - Come the sun, come the weather, come what may…”
‘The Last Sunbeam’ follows the metaphor of one pleading for the Sun not to set, but to keep them warm through the cold of night. This piece reflects then Sun’s reply: optimistic yet emotive; reflective yet full of hope.
While simple in rhythm, ‘The Last Sunbeam’ will challenge the senior school band to achieve textural balance throughout, culminating in an uplifting journey for both audience and performers. - Nathan Cahill
