    African Dawn

    £20.00

    Part of the Flexi-Collection World Tour Series.

    This piece embraces the sounds and imagery of a tribal group out singing on a remote hill top – individuals sing out a 2 bar phrase and the remainder of their group sing a response. African Dawn brings this vision to life by giving the opportunity for the musicians playing the original “Chant” or “Call” to be positioned as soloists, or just stand up within the main group.  There is also the chance for lots of percussion spread throughout the band and divided into groups, or even groups of people clapping the separate rhythms to bring forth the African atmosphere.

    £20.00

There is much fun to be had with this unusal combination and it is sure to be a fascinating experience for both involved groups.If a steel drum group isn’t possible, we have also made sure you can still bring the sun to your concert hall by providing an alternative solo version. This gives an chance for you to give a solo spot to one of your cornet (or trumpet) players and still capture the style of the music.

    The Terracotta Army of Mount Li

    £20.00

    Inspired by this wonder of the world, the piece embraces the Chinese style of music which often uses the pentatonic scale. It’s a sequence which is something quite unusual to our ears in the western world and can be quickly demonstrated by playing only the black notes on the piano . Luckily for the players, this version has been put into an easier key, but still retains the distinctive sounds.

    What’s The Matter Horn?

    £20.00

    The composer has been inspired by fond memories of hearing Alpine Bands and seeing knee slapping dancers performing Switzerland for this piece.It starts with some off-stage calls (which could even be from an Alpine Horn if one is available), and moves into a lively dance section, ending with a little yodeling! There are various ways to convey the yodeling through instruments, but a bit of vocal yodel practice could be a novel new addition to the band’s warm-up routine!
