Fiddler on the Roof - Part 1 by Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock. Arranged by Michael Brown/Will Rapp. For Marching Band (Score & Parts). Esprit Marching Band. Grade 3. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.3745222).
Fiddler on the Roof endures as one of the landmark musicals of all time. Michael Brown's opening production for the field starts with a “flute on the roof,” joined shortly by a solo clarinet. After a quick build to a climax, “Matchmaker” is treated creatively in 4/4 and a driving tempo. With plenty of variety and powerful ensemble scoring, this is a perfect way to open a show.
