Frogs for String Orchestra
Inspired by the gift of a frog guiro as well as the works of Percy Grainger, composer Randall D. Standridge has created a delightful aural visit to an imaginary pond.
In creating this "amphibious" work, the composer has used melodies that involve small "leaps" representing the frogs jumping about in their pond, trills representing buzzing insects, and of course the above-mentioned frog guiro.
Your students and audience will revel in the delightful aural painting of the life of a pond.
