With first and second year players in mind, Ed Huckeby has developed a modal melodic and harmonic structure using a familiar key as the tonal center, making the piece sound much more difficult than it really is. The contrasting slow section allows the ensemble to showcase its developing legato style. A single bass line also allows great flexibility for ensembles with limited low brass and low woodwind sections. Your students will love "Beyond The Stars" and your audiences will be amazed at how the band is playing "such difficult music." Highly recommended for young players and ensembles with limited instrumentation.
