Festival Arrangement – Greased!

Festival Arrangement – Greased!

(Triumph Series, 2014)

An overture comprised of four songs from the hit musical Grease, recently performed by the Brighton High School Musical Theatre Department. The songs included are Summer Nights, Greased Lightning, You’re the One That I Want, and We Go Together. The idea I had while creating this one was to follow the rise and fall and rise again feel of the movie, where everything starts out great and happy (hence the happy feel in the beginning of the movie) and then as the key goes minor, the scene becomes darker (with Danny & Sandy’s relationship in trouble and Rizzo’s pregnancy), but by the We Go Together section, everything is resolved and happy again! The piece was written for Miranda McDonald, who was in Brighton High School’s performance of Grease, in honor of her 18th birthday.
