Description

Chad Heiny’s Beacons of Light was composed for the memory of Ryan McCutcheon, a percussionist who tragically passed away at the age of 19. In this piece for a large percussion ensemble, Chad uses a variety of bright, metallic instruments like crotales, sizzle cymbals, and multiple clusters of chimes to represent actual beacons of light. This moving and thoughtful work will touch audiences and challenge intermediate performers, as well as honor the memory of a dedicated friend.

Chimes

Glockenspiel

2 vibraphones

3-4 marimbas—(low A)

Piano

Drums (piccolo snare drum, bongos, 4 concert toms (high, medium high, medium low, low), bass drum, deep concert snare drum)

Cymbals & gongs (hi-hat, 2 suspended cymbals, 3 ride cymbals (with & without sizzle attachments)

Accessories (4 graduated chime clusters (i.e. pin chimes, glass wind chimes, etc.), triangle, sleigh bells)
