This medley for concert band (with optional choir) includes four popular classics from the score, arranged in the order they appear in the opera: "Summertime," "I Got Plenty O' Nuttin'," "Bess, You Is My Woman," and "Oh Lawd, I'm On My Way." With or without the optional choir parts, this arrangement is a winner! (5:00).
