From its first performances in 1935 to its return to the Broadway stage in 2012, the American folk opera Porgy and Bess has endured as a national musical treasure, acclaimed by critics and enjoyed by audiences worldwide. This medley for concert band (with optional choir) includes four popular classics from the score, arranged in the order they appear in the opera: "Summertime," "I Got Plenty O' Nuttin'," "Bess, You Is My Woman," and "Oh Lawd, I'm On My Way." With or without the optional choir parts, this arrangement is a winner! (5:00).

  • September 10, 2012 Porgy and Bess - not only for summertime

    I bought this arragment for my local concert band. We have been searching for a long time for a medium difficult version of the famous songs and music from Gerwshin's opera. That one, I found ideal. Our audience liked it very much (we already had the first performance) as...

    well as my musicians did. In short: a good choice and my full recommendation as a conductor.
