Amy Bibb teaches band at JDHS. Her favorites are "Celtic Classics - Irish Folk Song Suite for wind orchestra" by Johan de Meij and "Fate of the Gods" by Steven Reineke.
"Fate of the Gods" is inspired by the story in Norse mythology of Ragnarök. The piece depicts a great struggle between good and evil, resulting in the destruction of all things and the emergence of a new, idyllic world in the aftermath.
