Spring Pieces

alright, christmas concerts behind us, and a spring concert, for some of us an adjudication and other events ahead, what pieces of literature are we looking at? i have no idea what songs were going for right now we havnt even came back from christmas break yet. theres a lot of talk of playing a few hank levey tunes.. a lot of you, if not most of you, probably have no clue who he is.. he was a composer who was a close friend to the schools.. he completely redefined, along with many other composers, what some people thought was normal. he loved weird meters.. 9/4... 12/4...5/4... gives a completely different feel to a song.. we really want to strive to play a few of his tunes this year.. other that, ill keep you posted

    well our band is going to California this spring to perform at disney land!!! (I'm in Massachusetts) So that'll be fun. All that we really have so far for our spring lineup is the English Folk Song Suite. However, we do have Abram's Pursuit (GREAT song), which we might play again in Cali. In the Wind Ensemble, we do a ton a sight reading, so one never really knows
