South Dakota Rhapsody

South Dakota Rhapsody composed by David Holsinger (1945-). For concert band. Grade 3+. Score and set of parts. Published by TRN Music Publisher (TU.CBSOU4).

Larry Mitchell and I have been friends for a long time! I worked with him as a graduate assistant at Central Missouri State, just before he landed the Director of Bands spot at South Dakota. When all his friends wanted to honor him with a composition, I was thrilled to take on the task. Larry told me his only concern was that the piece be accessible to small school bands - a community of musicians very important to him and the musical makeup of his home state. And so we agreed that the composition be written on the Grade 3+ level.
As I have done in the past, I wanted to imprint the music with the locality in some way. When we all think of South Dakota, most of us gather our impressions from movies - The state is either covered with snow, like in "Fargo" - which incidentally is in the OTHER Dakota, or is covered with buffalo like "Dances with Wolves", or is the site of Mount Rushmore, where Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint spent harrowing moments escaping the villains across the nose of Abraham Lincoln in "North by Northwest". When I was a boy, South Dakota meant Deadwood - and Wild Bill Hickok holding two Aces and two eight.
