Bio: Hello, my name is Caedon Croucher and this piece I have written is called "The Jade Crypt", it was written in about a week, so parts might be a little rough, this is due to the fact that the first piece I wrote for this was too difficult, so in a week I spent 5 hours a night writing a new piece for them that I thought they would enjoy playing as well as have fun. My dream is to one day be able to write music, or teach music for a living, and I'm trying my hardest to achieve my goals by practicing writing and playing music every moment I can. Feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Brief Bio by Jacob:

Hi! My name is Jacob Slomko. I play trumpet for Fairmont's Wind Symphony and am a part of our Composition Club. I've always been fascinated with writing music and am glad to have this opportunity to have one of concert bands play this composition. Entitled "March of the Ohioans", I tried to capture the wild and imaginative spirit of the Buckeye State and all who live in it. I hope you enjoy!
