A delightful concert piece in rondo form for middle school bands which is built on a modal melody. Chisham develops this tuneful theme through a number of variations which build to a rousing finish. Excellent teaching material that will demonstrate to younger students how a single motive can be developed into a strong musical statement. Includes lots of percussion parts to keep all your drummers involved and interested. A superior choice for almost any young band performance including contests. An exceptionally nice composition for this grade level!
