Shakata: Singing the World Into Existence

By Dana Wilson

Concert Band - Grade 3
Composed by Dana Wilson. Score and set of parts. Published by LudwigMasters Publications (LG.10100304).

Item Number: LG.10100304

Dana Wilson always strives to introduce students and audiences to new ways of thinking about music and performance practices. This work serves somewhat as an incantation, a summoning up of, by means of a group music ritual, the goodness of the earth and, consequently, ourselves. Rhythmic vocalizations abound, juxtaposed with rhythmical, percussive ensemble writing. Dana Wilson is a master and his works light up any program in which they are performed.

    I'm not a music teacher, but I played this when I was in Symphonic Band about 5 years ago, and I still think about it and even remember some of the words. Your students will have a TON of fun with this piece! Not to miss!
