A suite in four movements for orchestra taken from the contemporary opera "On the Wings of the Scarlet Messenger" by American Costa Rican composer James Nathaniel Holland. The first, "Dance of the Spirits" is a percussionists dream evoking Southeast Asian flavor and energy. The second movement "The Party: Intermezzo" is a popular dance type of driving beat. The suite slows with the third movement with the haunting " The Party: Art Imitates Life" and a recap of the Spanish chorus here arranged for orchestra "Bailen, Canten, Que Noche Bonita" Perfect for New Year's Eve or New Year's Day concert. Use with the arrangement Bailen, Canten Que Noche Bonita" with chorus or any of the stand alone arias from the opera.
