Soaring the Sky is a short piece in a typical brass band style with influences from popular music. It captures a feeling of freedom: a feeling of flying in total harmony with your surroundings. To soar literally means flying without propulsion, furthermore, it means to ascend to an unknown height.
This piece is best performed in a special seating plan, with the cornets rows facing each other standing behind the saxhorns, the trombones are placed behind the tubas. For extra effect, a drumkit can be placed in the centre of the band. This way the antiphonal character is best utilized.
