A Land Remembered
Larry Clark
A Land Remembered is based on the novel of the same name by Patrick D. Smith, which tells the story of pioneering families in the early days of Florida. The piece is set in three continuous movements, each depicting elements of the story, from the open fanfare, "A New Life in a New Land" to the beautiful "On the Prairie" and the strident final movement, "Hardships on the Rugged Frontier." This piece will demonstrate the skill and musicality of your concert-level band.

Mexican Folk Song Fantasy (Percussion Gone Buggy)

Joseph Compello uses the famous Mexican folk song "La Cucaracha" as the basis for a concert fantasy. Lots of rhythmic interest and percussion, plus every section of the band gets some of the melodic material. Students interested in Mexican history will find that a little research on the song “La Cucaracha” will reveal some interesting facts about the lyrics. A strong choice for your next concert to include the music of our southern neighbors.

Morning in Madrid
Bill Calhoun
Spanish-style rhythms, melodies and harmonies abound in this lovely new concert work from composer Bill Calhoun. From the opening “bird-like” calls from the woodwinds accompanied by the ascending chords in the clarinets and the brass, one can picture the sun rising above the horizon at the start of a Morning in Madrid. This piece will help you teach your students about lyrical expression while playing.

Mystic Portal
Sean O'Loughlin
From the mysterious opening to the energetic and heroic fast section, Mystic Portal is a dramatic journey for the developing concert band. The music is highly influenced by O'Loughlin's love for historically-based novels, with the intention of portraying all the tension and action of the written word in a musical context.

The Old Red Mill
Brant Karrick
As one of the most stunning new pieces in the catalog this year, The Old Red Mill may be Brant Karrick's best work to date. It opens with a lush and beautiful lyrical section before moving into a very creative, lilting up-tempo section. The piece has a down-home feel, but is a wonderful new addition to the literature. It is surely destined to become a standard.

Rifle Regiment (March)
John Philip Sousa, Arranged by Andrew Balent
When you hear the names John Phillip Sousa and Andrew Balent, you know they have to do with something great! Balent takes one of Sousa's most popular marches and works it down to keep some of the technical demands in check for most younger bands. Sousa wrote this march in 1886 to commemorate The Third Infantry, known as “The Old Guard.”

What a great opportunity for bands to perform a fantastic classical piece that adapts so well in the hands of a master arranger!

Winter on Emerald Bay
Alan Lee Silva
Bold music in the Celtic style from composer Alan Lee Silva, Winter on Emerald Bay has a rollicking 12/8 feel with lots of shifting textures and timbres.
