  • Item Details

    Based on a poem by Walt Whitman, The Phantom Dances by Michael Hennagin is a cool work for percussion ensemble that creates a sense of mystery and illusion. Strongly featuring syncopations, hemiolas, and phantom gestures among the 12 players. This piece has a constant driving momentum that propels the music forward, constantly changing.

    This constant motion and "ceaseless ambition" creates a rhythmical and visual masterpiece that will keep audience members on the edge of their seats and performers challenged all the way through.
