Instrumental Music on YouTube: “Star Wars: The Rebellion’s Last Stand”

Music – Star Wars – This composition named “Star Wars: The Rebellion’s Last Stand” was composed by Graham Plowman. He uploaded it to YouTube in April of 2018. As he says on his post:

This is an original piece but I wanted to make it in the style of the amazing John Williams and his Star Wars music so that it might fit in with that harmonic language and orchestration style he uses.

This is nice instrumental music and definitely fits in with the music heard on the Star Wars films. I have definitely added it to my music collection. If you like this video, there are many others on Plowman’s YouTube site.

Instrumental Music on YouTube: “Vader’s Overture”

Music – This video was uploaded to YouTube in September of 2018 by composer Jacob A. Cadmus. As the composer explains on his YouTube post:

. . . This is my inquiry to Star Wars Theory’s Darth Vader fan film/web series. I opted for a classic/traditional approach, drawing some heavy inspiration from the prequel trilogy.

It is nice listening, though with a touch of forboding evil.

Instrumental Music on YouTube: Disney Princess Medley

Music – OK. I know this isn’t an instrumental piece, but I wanted to share it anyway. My son suggested that I take a look at this group. I have four granddaughters and at one time or another, each and every one of them wanted to be a Disney Princess. This video was posted to YouTube in August of 2017 by Voctave. From their website:

Voctave is an 11-member a cappella group from the Central Florida area. Formed in the winter of 2015, the voices that bring their artistic arrangements to life represent a wealth of diverse backgrounds and musical experiences. Group members have professional roots with Walt Disney World entertainment, but their range does not stop there. From gospel music to musical theater, contemporary Christian to barbershop, pop music to choral specialists, Voctave voices have covered it all both in and out of the a cappella realm. Members of Voctave have performed all over the world and can be heard on countless recordings. The group has performed with Grammy, Dove and American Music Award recipients including Sandi Patty, Kirstin Maldonado, Mark Lowry, David Phelps & Jody McBrayer. With multiple #1 songs and albums on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify, Voctave has also ranked in the top 25 on Billboard Magazine’s charts. Between Facebook and YouTube, they have received more than 100 million views on their videos. Voctave currently has 4 albums that are digitally available on all platforms.

If you have some “Disney Princesses” in your life, regardless of age, this will be music they want to hear.
