Quintescent Journey


In our ongoing effort to continue supporting the creation of quality music for school instrumental ensembles, the IHS Wind Ensemble commissioned a new work for concert band by composer Lisa Galvin.  This energetic work was premiered by the Wind Ensemble on May 9, 2018 at the IHS Spring Concert.  While still in draft form, we received word that the work will be published in 2018 by C.L. Barnhouse.  See our "High School" page for additional information regarding this process.
