Falcon Ridge

Austin Isaac (composer)


  • Violin 1
  • Violin 2
  • Viola
  • Cello
  • Contrabass


This exciting piece will help orchestra students soar to new heights! The brisk, consistent tempo will keep all players engaged as they alternate playing the two main themes. Light staccato accompaniments offer the opportunity to practice a brushed bow stroke, and first violin and bass sections will encounter some easy shifting. Accented syncopation with ties across the bar are performed in all sections, perfect for refining subdividing skills. This piece was inspired by the sight of a majestic falcon flying effortlessly over the scenic landscape of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia.
