Grade 2.5
Sparks is a work depicting how incredible things happen with just a small spark. A spectacular fire can be started with a simple spark, or a spark of the imagination can lead to a magnificent idea. These sparks manifest themselves in many ways, but invariably we all experience some type of spark in our lives. The piece was commissioned by the Carl Sandburg Middle School Bands in Alexandria, Virginia. Directors Charlie Burts and Joe LaBrie asked that it be dedicated to the school principal, Donna Pasteur, in honor of her retirement. Throughout her tenure, she was an incredible supporter of the arts. It only seemed fitting to commission a work in her honor.The work changes character several times as it explores various aspects of its title. However, despite its multifaceted form, it also seeks to show the seamlessness of these ideas, indicating the presence of a universal spark. The piece is essentially a metaphor that attempts to reveal the true power of even the smallest of actions or events. It reminds us that we are all capable of making a difference, no matter how insignificant we think we are.
