Concert band - Grade 3.5
Composed by Robert Longfield. Command Series. Audio recording available separately (items CL.WFR335 & CL.WFR343). Patriotic. Score and set of parts. Composed 2005. Duration 7 minutes, 12 seconds. Published by C.L. Barnhouse (CL.012-3398-00).

Item Number: CL.012-3398-00

A dramatic and inspiring patriotic composition which contains fresh musical treatments of "Yankee Doodle", "Johnny Has Gone For A Soldier", "America" and a full symphonic treatment of "The Star-Spangled Banner". A great concert opener or closer, and is suitable for any patriotic or civic occasion. ("The Star-Spangled Banner" can be played alone, with or without audience participation.) Challenging, but amazingly playable for a piece that sounds so spectacular and impressive! All sections of the band get several chances to shine and it's a full-blown extravaganza that is perfect for a zillion programming situations. Very impressive!
