Symbol of Freedom by David Shaffer. Concert band. Young Concert Band. Command Series. Grade 2. Extra full score. Composed 1991. Published by C.L. Barnhouse (CL.011-2323-01AR).
Keeping in mind all of the limitations of inexperienced musicians, this composer's talents for writing contemporary sounds, rich textures, and simple melodic material has produced an extremely accessible piece. "Symbol of Freedom" will satisfy the abilities, capture the interest, and most importantly, provide interesting musical material for young bands. Wonderful teaching piece!
