Poem
for symphonic band  2015
An extremely complex and colorful soundscape that defies the normal medium of band composition. At 5 minutes in length, it is my first piece of the new year, 2016.

2016 Semi-Finalist for "The American Prize" in wind band composition.

1st Suite for Band
for concert band  2014
Zachary Ploeger's "1st Suite for Band" is a 7 minute concert work for symphonic or concert band. Hear the traditional sound of the band in all of its glory as your listen to a new and fresh suite for band. Modeled after the structure and style of the "Holst" Suites for band, my Suite for band will surely make a great edition to any serious concert. Great for any intermediate ensemble!
