Hello Middle School Select Band Members!
So sorry we had to miss our first rehearsal this morning. In the coming week I’d like you to listen to the two pieces we’ll begin with. Remember, select band will only meet for 25 minutes once a week. This means that you’ll need to be putting in significant work outside of school on this music. You’ll be doing yourself a BIG favor if you get to know this pieces by listening a few times before we meet on Tuesday!
The first piece: Celtic Air and Dance No. 2 by Michael Sweeney.
This is a collection of Folk Tunes. Some of you may recognize “Danny Boy,” which we sang in District Chorus two years ago. ENJOY!
The second piece is the Peter Gunn Theme by Henry Mancini. This is a jazz tune that I played in middle school jazz band. It’s so groovy.
