Experience the sounds of the American West like you've never heard them before! Inspired by music from the great cowboy movies of the late 1960s, this powerful composition uses a large battery of percussion to bring this important part of Americana right
A lush middle section uses beautiful scoring and haunting melodies before the piece returns to a new treatment of the opening material, building toward a powerful conclusion. Great music for young bands!

About FJH Young Band

Appropriate for middle school and smaller high school groups. Second clarinets usually stay below the break. Parts are written with more independence, and instrumentation increases slightly. There is still adequate doubling in the lower voices. Grades 2 - 2.5

    Played this at a camp. Fairly easy to play, but the few dynamic changes adds excitement because you get to have fun adding them in yourself! A really cool piece to play. You need to know what it's about to fully apreciate it (and i think it is played...

    better when you do know what it's about). I enjoy the solo part in the beginning (we played them w/two people on each solo instrument part, and I was one of the clarinetists). I enjoy this piece a lot and hope someone else will also enjoy it as much as I did.
