John Herndon was inspired by fairy tales and fantasy novels to compose Sic Semper Draconis, which in Latin means “thus always to dragons.’’ In it, Herndon moves through many different moods and textures to depict an epic tale of dragon slaying. Though the piece features a large instrumentation, most instruments can be found in any band room and will be already familiar to most young percussionists. Sic Semper Draconis can compliment almost any concert program and will certainly entertain audiences and excite young performers!
