Charm. (Concert Band Score Only). By Kevin Puts. For Concert Band (Score). BandQuest. 22 pages. Published by American Composers Forum (HL.4003301).
Composed by 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winner Kevin Puts, Charm is a short, joyful piece written in the meter 7/8. Of the title, Puts writes, “I decided to call it Charm because, for me, the music conjures up magic, good-luck charms and such, and I was also thinking of the other meaning of the word, that intangible quality possessed by certain people and places that truly can cast a spell.” Free interdisciplinary curriculum for the piece is available for download at www.BandQuest.org.
