Champions Rising, Performed by SAS High School Band

Monday, January 11th, 2021In the fall of 2020, Syracuse Academy of Science high school welcomed virtual guest speaker Adrian Sims who spoke with the band students about his piece titled Champions Rising. This piece is one that resonated well with the students as it invites the listener to take a journey of overcoming obstacles, struggles and ultimately a triumph.

Over the past few months, the band students have been working hard and practicing over Zoom the piece Champions Rising, composed by Adrian Sims. We are excited to share that they recorded their performance for you to listen and watch.
