Liturgical Music for Band-Mailman
Third Suite-Jager
Symphonic Prelude-Camphouse
Variations on a Korean Folk Song-Chance
Night Dances-Yurko
Olympiada-Hazo
Immoveable Do-Grainger (a long-shot)


I want a "difficult" transcription for the spring concert. We have Die Fledermaus by Strauss but have not tried it yet, I also want to consider La Belle Helene by Offenbach.

Die Fledermaus is a good one. How about "Overture to La Forza del Destino" by Verdi? There's a grand band arrangement of it out there, but I'd have to be at home and look at the CD to see who did it.

So far all we have is Fiesta Mexicana. Fun song!

We are considering:

First Suite In Eb (Holst)
Second Suite In F (Holst)
Canzona(Mennin)
Simoraine(Barraclough)

This list will get smaller or maybe larger as the school year progresses so we are not certain of which pieces will make our "final cut".

we've only been sight reading through songs, but I think it was more for just the experience of it than actually looking for a festival set. As of now we have 0 songs

Wow, I loved Mannin Veen. Deep, emotional piece, but challenging enough to be fun.

We've been sightreading a lot of stuff out of the following:

"Hymn to the Fallen" by John Williams (from Saving Private Ryan
"Elsa's Processional to the Cathedral" by Richard Wagner
"Commando March" by Samuel Barber
"Folk Song Suite" by Ralph Vaughn Williams
"Irish Tune from County Derry" by Percy Aldridge Grainger
"Lincolnshire Posy" by Grainger (just certain movements)
"American Overture for Band" by Joseph Willcox Jenkins
"Overture in B Flat" by Caesar Giovannini
"Through Bolts and Bars (Per Aspera Ad Astra!)" by Ernesto Urbach
"Sonntag Ist's" by Ernst Stieberitz

My director wants to do "American Overture" and "October" by Eric Whitacre for our competition set for festivals and the concert competition at the Vallejo Festival of Bands, but we haven't gotten our hands on the latter piece yet. We've chosen "Sonntag Ist's" as our competition march, so I'm really excited for the spring season.

We rec'd $3,000 worth of new music from the district, so we've been sightreading like crazy. So far we are considering (for symphonic band and wind ensemble and marching band)

Boys of the Old Brigade (Chambers)
Muhldorf (Broadbent)
The Glory of Cory (Broadbent)
Trieste Overture (Diero/Daehn)
Goddess of Fire (Reinecke)
Folk Dances (Shostakovich)
Spoon River (Grainger)
Perthshire Majesty (Hazo)

LOTS more to read in the future....Variations on a Korean Folk Song; Mars; Canzona, Hymn & Fugue (Camphouse); Finale to Shostakovich Sym. #5; Hounds of Spring (Reed); Mercury (Van der Roost), and more.

So far we've read (& rejected): St. Paul's Suite (Holst), St. Martin's Suite (Van der Roost), West Highlands Sojourn (Sheldon), Into the Raging River (Reinecke), Sedona (Reinecke), Orion (Van der Roost), and a bunch more we were just reading to read them (stuff by Clare Grundman, Hugh Stuart, Frank Erickson, etc).

Anyway, its been a fun week back!

Mr. Stratton! Such great stuff you got from the district! Please do "Mühledorf" for the street! I'll stow away in Franklin's bus just to go listen to you guys do it! And you also have some AWESOME stuff, Finale from Shostakovich's Symphony No 5 in D Minor (such an awe-inspiring symphony, so much of a story behind it) in particular.

And Franklin actually did "West Highland Sojourn" this year as our opening piece for concert competition. Quite a fun little piece; not too hard, but it still sounds nice. Anyways, I wish you and LP/O much success in the future! Keep up the excellence, haha.

If you want see what it is like to play A LOT of music in a short period of time, click the link below and then follow the "Next>" link in the upper right hand corner to see what we played every week for 9 straight weeks. The really fun part is that we only had two, 2 hour rehearsals for each concert! :shock: AND five guest conductors! The real chop killer was John Williams' "The Cowboys."
