Squid Party (score & parts) - 3OB/EH

Composer: Holleyman, Michael

Publisher: TrevCo

Edition: 3157 - 68012


Squid Party

for three oboes and EH

Squid Party is a sound representation of squid gathering in the ocean to celebrate. The piece starts out with mysterious trills that represent the wildlife, and the excitement of the ocean; and a majestic melody that is echoed throughout the opening. These opening themes transition into an upbeat dance-like section that introduces a bouncy melody that is shared between all parts. At the conclusion of the piece the part begins to die down and the opening majestic melody is repeated as the sea creatures begin to drift back into the ocean from whence they came; but is followed by a short, surprise ending that repeats the jig, in a joking manner, from the second section.
