Concert Band - Grade 1.5
Composed by Mark Williams. Concert Band. Challenger Band Series. Conductor Score & Parts. 62 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.19521).

Item Number: AP.19521

This driving original by Mark Williams depicts the flight of the majestic condor along the rugged Pacific coast. Once common, but now endangered, this bird's lonely travels are reflected in the minor tone of this exciting work for young band. Cast in ABA form, a brief slow middle section is followed by a return to the brilliant "Allegro vivo" of the opening. Punctuated by strong horn/sax lines and syncopated percussion figures, this selection is destined to become a favorite of students and audiences.

    We played this in my middle school band (7th and 8th graders together) and it was definitely my favorite piece of music we've ever played. There is little bits and pieces that may be a bit complicated at first, but once it's put together, it's an amazing...

    piece.

    This song is pretty easy but it depends on which level you play. If you're in advanced band, as I am, it is probably an easy piece, however, if you're in sixth to seventh grade, I think this piece would be perfect. It's amazing, and hard at...

    first but you'll get it. HIGHLY reccomended.
