Today at our senior class graduation practice, one of the administators said that one of the other administrators would give $10 to the first person who could name the composer of Pomp & Circumstance. :lol: I didn't really feel like getting up, though. And besides, I thought it would be kind of unfair for me to say it since I've played it for 3 years and I'm our band librarian, so I figured I'd give someone else a shot. I don't know if anyone else ever got it or not.
He should have asked who arranged the version our band plays; that probably no one would have gotten :twisted: (The answer is Gardner)

We're doing Pomp and Circumstance arranged by Grundman.
But I don't want the seniors to graduate!

Pomp and Circumstance is actually a series of marches by Edward Elgar. The theme we know as "P and C" is actually only one of the sections of Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1. If a a band were to play a good arrangement of the entire piece, even though it is very difficult, I think the band members might enjoy it better. But the best graduation march I ever played was Crown Imperial March by William Walton. We used it when I was a student at San Bernardino Valley College. We never had to play it more than twice through.

Every school I've taught at....
Every school I've played at....
We've either done the standard Grundman arrangement or an arrangement so watered down that you could cry playing it.
But... most schools have their traditions and EVERYONE is used to the same music each year/ Want to see a senior advisor freak? Play different music. When I was in high school, our band director was "fed up" with P & C so our combined A/B Bands played Procession of the Nobles. He got in hot water for that one so the next year....
