A New Land- music for band

This is another new work composed for the Prince George ( Alban Classical) New Horizons band. It has parts of varying difficulty since the players are at varying levels. Music takes time to create a mood so I wanted a work that would have a longer duration ( about 5 min) Some technical parts( to review tech practice, in particular doubling rhythms) some melodic part to feature each section and some guided improvisation. The work is called a New Land I was thinking of ones impression arriving at a new turn in the creek or an island. DOWNLOAD

For Families

Some of the happiest memories I have of my childhood are concerts I went to with my parents. I didn't always undertand all the music but I sensed its depth and magic.

All children accompanied by an adult are admitted without charge to Alban Classical Concerts.
