Alfred's Debut Series for Young Bands
for: Youth concert band
Australian water dragons are fairly large lizards that have been around for 20 million years or so, and they can be seen along the rivers and waterways of Eastern Australia.
For some Australian Aborigines, the water dragon is said to bring divine presence and a gateway to the astral world. This programmatic work portrays these mystical primordial creatures playing around in the midday sun.
