Description

The title of Patrick Speranza’s percussion ensemble piece In the Sky is taken from the famous lyric, “like a diamond in the sky” from the children’s song Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. The use of metallic instruments throughout is meant to conjure the image of bright, shining stars.

Intended for middle school and high school ensembles, the parts are written at varying skill levels to involve players of differing experience, and requires a conservative instrumentation. If desired, the vibraphone and marimba parts, can be doubled to accommodate larger ensembles.
