"Murmuration" by Blaine Klein

Price: $35.00

Difficulty: Medium/Advanced (great for high school and college ensembles)

A murmuration is when a flock of birds flies together as one unit. This is a beautiful event to witness as each individual bird contributes to the large mass moving in the sky. This piece was inspired by seeing a murmuration on the drive to work one day and reflecting on how something so wonderful can take place in everyday life through coordination and synchronization.
