An apotheosis is the highest or best part of something. This Apotheosis celebrates the senior recital of the composer's son and was written expressly for that purpose. Composed for two identical setups, each consisting of bongos, two toms, bass drum, brake drum, and three splash cymbals, this medium-advanced duet is mostly through-composed. It opens with a meter map in a three-bar grouping. It touches on a calmer, softer section and moves through a few metric modulations before culminating with a bombastic ending. Your audience won't soon forget this one!
