American history comes to life with this new work from composer Robert W. Smith. "Legend of the Queen Anne's Revenge" is a work for the developing concert band inspired by the sailing ship of the same name and its infamous captain known as Blackbeard. Featuring rollicking nautical themes and a dark journey into "Davy Jones Locker" featuring the tuba, the piece will be a favorite of your students and audience. Fun to prepare and educationally sound!
