Full Score

Sakari Dixon Vanderveer

The Castle Upon Crystal Shores for orchestra


In my downtime, I love to read for enjoyment. More often than not, I gravitate towards nonfiction, like essays, informational texts, and self-help books. (I happen to be a sucker for generally prefer realistic fiction since I often have a hard time taking to most fantasy or science fiction. I was like that even as a kid. Yet, music is often what takes me to otherworldly places most instantaneously. As with many of my recent works, writing The Castle Upon Crystal Shores was that experience for me. I began to picture a kingdom built upon honor and integrity. When outside forces attempt to deceive them and capture their illustrious stronghold and its enchanting lands, the kingdom opposes this evil with heroic dignity and is ultimately unshaken. Sakari Dixon Vanderveer
