This energetic piece for treble voices sweeps listeners into the rapids of E. Pauline Johnson's poem entitled Shadow River. Bold vocal entrances cascade into bright harmonies as the piano creates an undercurrent of lively folk rhythms. As the river slows, the music floats into an elegant, reflective section, portraying the "shadows and the dreaming." Shadow River will display your treble choir's vocal and emotional range while taking audiences on a beautiful journey!
