This famous "old line" march is finally available in a concert edition! This spirited march gives the entire band a chance to shine. The trio is presented first with a lyrical melody/countermelody, second with a delightful woodwind variation, and finally tutti with a solid trombone countermelody. Featuring a musical reference to the bugle call "Taps" (hence the title,) "Lights Out" is an excellent 6/8 march for mid-level bands. A guaranteed audience-pleaser!
