Skeleton in My Closet
By Wynn-Anne Rossi
Oh dear, it seems that a skeleton may be trapped in your closet. But who's in real trouble here? It seems the closet that poor Mr. Skeleton is trapped in is quite messy and gross---even for a monster! This Elementary solo is written in D minor, 4/4 with a pickup measure, providing the student with the opportunity to challenge themselves and be in charge of starting the performance. What follows is a conversation between Mr. Skeleton and the student that offers wide ranges in dynamics as well as frequently changing articulation that will provide a rewarding challenge for any student. The optional accompaniment offers to enhance the quirky and comical nature of this wonderful twist on the "monster in my closet" tale! A Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selection.
