Work Overview

Trouble in the Ribcage is a fun piece written specifically for younger performers. Darkly mysterious at the beginning, it quickly transforms into a toe-tappingly thrilling roller-coaster, full of lush harmonies and bouncy rhythms, climaxing with a surprising twist. The orchestra was so taken with the piece that they created their own choreography to accompany it, which can be seen here.
