About the Composition

Captain Ranz and her Crew have realized how the authoritarian Rule of the Nefarian Alliance has made life as they used to know it, no longer. While in dock at Base Zed the crew of the G1 voted unanimously to break from the Alliance and fight for the freedom of their families and friends.
This is the adventure of the Renegade Stealth Cruiser G1.

These pieces are accessible to band programs with varying instrumentation (ex. 11 kids: 1 flute, 1 clarinet, 5 saxes, 1 tuba, and 3 percussion). They can also serve as an ensemble piece for solo and ensemble contests.
