  • March 19, 2003 Amazing Upper High School Band Piece

    This wonderful American classic by William Schuman is and breathtaking piece of music, perfect for the higher high school band or for a solid community band. It utilizes both chorale and march aspects, including varying tempos and broad dynamic ranges. An overall wondeful piece of music.
