In Stock. This beautiful slow movement from a work for solo organ is a great feature for the clarinet section of a band. The melody flows throughout the ensemble but the clarinets receive the most attention. This is an ideal work to show off the lyrical and musical side of a concert band. The haunting melody will captivate audiences and impress adjudicators at festivals and other contests.
This work was originally written as a contest entrance piece for the theme song for the 1967 Expo in Montreal. The band arrangement, done by Kenneth Bray, has truly captured the spirit of this concert march. The melody is played by all including the low brass and tubas. Written in typical march style with some interesting musical twists, this will have your audience marching in their seats.
This is a fun closer or encore to a concert and is a feature for the baritone player in your ensemble. The name "Car-Tune" refers to the sound of the horn of the old sports cars. This is a thrilling original by Kenneth Bray that shows off his musical sense of humour and his creative scoring of colourful percussion. It is full of surprises and is a sure success at the end of a concert.
This popular piano solo has now been adapted for the concert band. It is a character piece depicting the mysterious nature of gypsies on their travels. The mysteriousness of the work makes it an excellent choice for a concert band around Halloween time. All sections of the band play a portion of the melody but none are too difficult. There are huge dynamic contrasts and contrasting melodic material that keep this short piece interesting and unique.
