Darklands Project - Randall Standridge
We have joined a group of other schools to be a part of the commissioning of three new works for band. This is a unique opportunity for us to be a part of the creation process of new music that will live on. As part of the project, the composer has included us in his weekly updates regarding the process of the creation of this music.
