A rather long title for a piece that is explained in the program notes giving a story of the title. This piece is a contemporary band selection with a different flavor to give your program variety. This is a driving piece that will excite your band and audience. This is ideal for an opener or placed anywhere within your program or contest performance.
This recording is by the Butler University Wind Ensemble. Conducted by Dr. Robert Grechesky, Director of Bands, the Wind Ensemble has established a reputation for the highest standards of excellence in musical performance. Comprised of students from majors across the University, the band performs its home concerts at Butler's magnificent Clowes Memorial Hall. The band has also performed at conferences and conventions for the Indiana Music Educators Association, Music Educators National Conference, College Band Directors National Association, American Bandmaster's Association, the International Mid-Europe Conference in Schladming, Austria, the International Spring Music Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia, the SoirÃˆes Musicale de Bissen in Luxembourg, and the International Percussive Arts Society. Our thanks to Dr. Grechesky and the members of the Wind Ensemble for their recording of this selection.
