Serenity and Dance composed by Ben Pritchard. For Concert Band. Secular, 20th Century. Advanced Intermediate. Set of Parts, Score. Published by Ben Pritchard (S0.1522).
Serenity and Dance has many interest for both teachers and student performers. There is a broad range of dynamics, expression, and ensemble balance required. The tight harmonies, changing meter, textures, melodic layering, and intensity are exciting for both conductor and performer. The piece utilizes a variety of percussion instruments (including vocalizations) and every wind/brass line is an important part of the overall performance. I also find that, despite its frequent meter changes, the composition has a “catchy” melody. Many of the student performers have told me that they’ve gone home after school singing the woodwind melody from the “Dance” portion (even brass and percussionists!).
