In 1995 I founded and directed an instrumental ensemble at my church. We were known as "Rhythm of the Rock" and our members ranged in age from the teens to the 70s. Not only did we provide special music for church services, but we also made a few special appearances around town. Virtually all of the music we performed were compositions and arrangements I wrote for the group. During the 5 years of the ensemble's existence, I got a lot of practice writing for this medium and exploring the different tone colors provided by a diverse group of instruments. I submit to you below some of the more polished pieces from this period.
