Shenandoah by Randol Alan Bass. Concert Band. Concert Band. Alfred Concert Band. Folk. Grade 4. Conductor Score & Parts. 152 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.31738).
This breathtaking arrangement of Shenandoah was created at the request of well-known "Pops" conductor Michael Krajewski and was premiered in late summer, 2004, by the Houston Symphony Orchestra. This new setting for band makes a stunning addition to any concert program. Numerous soloists are featured in this sweeping, lyric setting of the famous folksong melody with a panoramic, "Americana" feel. This would make a worthy addition to any Pops program and can be played effectively in an outdoor setting.
