Concert Band Piece: Ascension [First Post!]

Hello everyone! This is my first post in the forum. This is a piece I wrote for my high school band to play called Ascension. It tells the story of a man climbing a mountain, and has many little vignettes of things he feels and sees. Take a listen and let me know what you think!A couple of notes: in the mp3, many percussion parts are missing because I don't have samples. Also, I have never taken a music theory class, so I apologize for any glaring errors :)Score and mp3 are attached.See More
