The creative genius of Pierre La Plante has never been better showcased than with "Variations On A Merry Tune." Based on a theme from Robert Schumann, known variously as "The Jolly Farmer" and "The Happy Farmer's Return From Work," this delightful work will bring smiles to all! Pierre takes this cheery tune all throughout the ensemble, creating opportunities for every section to shine. A charming selection for concert band, and a wonderful audience pleaser as well. Our highest recommendation!
