This programmatic composition, inspired by the many ghost stories that have come from the mysterious occurrence of lights on Brown Mountain, North Carolina, musically tells the story of a missing 19th-century woman that is searched for every night by villagers. Using exposed instrumental lines, a developing three-note theme, and contemporary harmonic and percussive elements, this composition for mature concert bands is a great choice for contest or as a unique and different programing contrasting selection.
