Bayou Chinchuba for flutes and percussion
This jazzy composition gives an impression of the unpredictable activity of a bayou full of critters. Chinchuba is one of many bayous that empty into New Orleans’ Lake Pontchartrain. Typical wildlife species found there are crawfish, catfish, toads, alligators, bass, and blue gill. Bouncing boomwhackers, spurting headjoints, and an energetic flute duet provide for musical creativity for performers and smiles for listeners.
Performed by the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra Flute Choir.
