Carpe Diem!
Author: Meyer, Richard

Full of energy and excitement, this overture makes the perfect concert opener or closer. Tuneful melodies and shifting moods explore a wide variety of string playing techniques, while the colorful orchestration gives every section a chance in the spotlight. The piece is in A-B-A form. The opening section features a high-spirited main theme followed by a more lyrical subordinate theme. The contrasting middle section is a tender lullaby introduced first by solo violin, and then taken up with great emotion by the entire ensemble. The opening "A" section returns, refreshingly re-orchestrated for added interest. The piece ends in a flurry of excitement. Playable by middle-level groups but definitely mature enough for the advanced string orchestra, "Carpe Diem!" is sure to be a favorite with students, teachers, and audiences everywhere!
