Concert Series - Grade 3.5
A toe tapping concert item with choreography to add a visual dimension by Dan Price.
Commissioned in 2013 by the National Children’s Band of Great Britain for their 10th Anniversary, Blue Thunder takes inspiration from the fast and noisy world of steam locomotives. The Mallard 4468 is a LNER Pacific steam locomotive and was famous for setting the world land speed record (126mph). Blue Thunder (a reference to the train's colour and lightning speed) also marks the 75th anniversary of this world record. The music imitates the sounds and excitement of a steam train on its journey with some added choreography which adds to the excitement.
