Quick Overview

A lively and exhilarating new piece for beginning bands, Effervescence lives up to it's title, but is so much more. It also contains lush harmonies, sweeping melodic gestures reminiscent of the America school of composers like Copland.  It is a sophisticated musical presentation, but with limited technical demands, making it easy for young students, but very musically satisfying.
