by Arthur J. Michaels
Mockingbirds live throughout most of the U.S. and in parts of Canada and Mexico and it also happens to be the state bird of Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas, and Florida. Inspired by the mockingbirds in his own neighborhood, Arthur J. Michaels' composition, Mockingbirds, captures the beauty and playfulness of this iconic bird. Throughout the composition Michaels suggests their mimicking song and their competitive cacophony through his use of imitative phrases and countermelodies.
Mockingbirds is a moderately difficult wind ensemble piece with a duration of about 2:50.
