Strings— need help! I need a story for a song to give to my orchestra, and fast.

I’m having a competition! Most voted original song gets to be played!

It doesn’t really matter what the whole thing is about. It’s just gotta be like a story... I need strings, brass, and everything. Like Peter and The Wolf, you know? Each instrument representing a different character. I don’t care what the theme is, and heck, my teacher might not like it and no one might vote— but this could be fun. He recommended me using this so I can find some great song writers.

My first piece for string orchestra

 Hello, I'm writing a piece for my orchestra to play at the end of the school year, and I have a rough draft done. I'd really appreciate anything you have to say about it, especially criticism (but, of course, compliments feel good too). I don't want to look like a fool  :P  so I want to polish up this piece really well, even if that means writing another draft, or just write a different piece entirely.

Thanks :)

Notable Suggestion- Respite by David Reeves

I'm in one of the first ensembles to play the piece, and if you can get your hands on it, you need to play it. It's a very Clarinet-heavy work, with an Oboe Solo (Clarinets play a second, hidden part, so I don't know if it's a solo), A trumpet solo, a Flute solo, and a Sax Quartet. Music for a gentler time indeed...

It might not be released yet, just look for the Clinton High School Wind Ensemble's performance of it in March. It may be released, I don't know. Just keep a look out.

(If I'm way to active, let me know)

What should I do next?

I am having a hard time deciding what I should do next, please help me decide.

The choices I have narrowed it down to are:
Demons-Imagine Dragons
I Bet My Life-Imagine Dragons
Believer-Imagine Dragons
Viva La Vida-Coldplay
The Greatest Show-The Greatest Showman
From Now On-The Greatest Showman
Dragonhearted-Tryhardninja & Captainsparkles

Post your thoughts as to which one I should do.

(Please make it easier for me, if someone has already put the song you want in the thought, just comment on that thought, thank you)
