America, the Beautiful composed by Samuel Augustus Ward. Arranged by Carmen Dragon, adapted by Douglas E. Wagner. Concert Band. Concert Band; Part(s); Score; SmartMusic. Pop Young Band. Form: Transcription. Patriotic. Grade 2. 124 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.39532).
The rich musical legacy that Carmen Dragon left the world usually includes his solid reputation as a consummate orchestrator. He is best remembered for the iconic arrangement of "America, the Beautiful" for both symphony orchestra and symphonic band [grade 4 original setting, Alfred item number 00-FXB123]. Samuel Ward's familiar tune enjoys a sumptuous feast of harmonic color and instrumental nuance, and is now available in an edition for younger players and their audiences to enjoy. All of the majestic beauty and awesome grandeur of Dragon's original is preserved in this new scoring, with appropriate accommodations made for less experienced instrumentalists. A stunning addition to the young band repertoire! (3:00)
