You may know this composer from the exceptional music he has written for beginning band, but now you will hear why many think he is one of the best writers of concert band music at any level. This exciting piece weaves exotic gypsy melodies together with compound meter designed to challenge the moderately advanced band. It is the percussion section that drives this piece, using rhythms that are typical of Eastern European folk music. Gypsy Dance is a great way to introduce students to this genre!

    Our 7th/8th grade Wind Ensemble is playing it. With 20 minute rehearsals 2x a week I'm shocked they can pull it off but they're doing it! Bravo! Love the piece!
