The Devil Went Down to Georgia (Solo feature for Fl, Vln, Clar, Sax, or Xylo and opt. narr.). Arranged by Michael Brown. For Clarinet, Concert Band, Flute, Violin, Xylophone, Alto Saxophone. Score and full set of parts.. Young Concert Band. Grade 3. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.4001045).
Take your best soloist and turn him (or her) loose to do musical battle with the devil! In this cleverly designed novelty number, solo parts are provided for flute, violin, clarinet, alto sax, and mallet percussion. In addition, an optional narration is included along with alternate passages to work with any of the soloists. This tune was a number 1 hit for the Charlie Daniels Band back in 1979, and it could very well be the number 1 hit of your next band concert! (Hint: have your principal play the devil, or do the narrating).
