The Music Makers (Grade 3 Concert Band with Choir). By James Curnow. For Concert Band, Band with Choir (Score & Parts). Curnow Music Concert Band. Grade 3. Curnow Music #041500. Published by Curnow Music (HL.44003479).
What a terrific way to kick off a combined chorus, band and even orchestra concert! THE MUSIC MAKERS, based on O'Shaughnessy's poem by the same name, by James Curnow works just as well as a closer, pulling your groups together for an all-inclusive grand finale. From beat one, the rhythmic exuberance in the accompaniment sets up the inspiring choral entrance, and the lovely andante espressivo middle theme contrasts delightfully. Careful scoring ensures successful balance as you thrill the audience with an array of rich and colorful sound. Spectacular! (Can also be performed with concert band alone) Grdae 3.0 6:13.
