Bruce Pearson has written this overture for band to describe the many different peoples that make up our country, or, for that matter, any country. From its bold opening statement to its melodic Andante section, Tapestry is the perfect selection for your festival or contest presentation. Challenging to all sections of the band, it is a work combining "colonial-style" melodies with 20th century harmonies. A dramatic statement by Bruce Pearson, author of the Standard of Excellence Comprehensive Band Method.
