I am going to have to say that Overture to Candide is a good piece, but remember that this depends on the level of your wind ensemble. Our WE plays songs like Winds of Poseidon, and Invicta, and Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night. It all deopends on the level of music played.

I whole heartedly agree with you on all of these pieces, but my favorite to play would have to be Hounds of Spring. Especially from a 2nd chair euphoniums point of view, and my best friend as the first chair euphonium.

However, I would have to add October(Eric Whitacre) to the list. and this is from the frst chair euphoniums POV.

Blue shades
Rhapsody in Blue

we read rhapsody in blue my freshman year, back when we had a piano player that could do it. it was so awesome.

Those are both great pieces. I didn't think of adding Rhapsody in Blue to my list since I didn't really think of it as a Wind Ensemble Piece, but it is one of my favorite pieces of music in general.

Our WE plays songs like Winds of Poseidon


ahhh....I LOVE Winds of Poseidon...I've never played it, but it's such a great piece to hear. I hope I'll play it sometime before I'm done with band.
