    Mondo Glissando - Mike Hannickel

    Slip-slidin' trombone smears in this rip-snortin' ragtime setting are sure to tickle your ears and put some tap in your toes. The trombone glissando is the happiest sound around! Dedicated to, and premiered by, the Westchester Middle School Band of Westchester, Illinois, Mr. Jason Kluge, director, MONDO GLISSANDO targets that most critical of wind sections. When was the last time you featured your trombones? When was the last time they felt like STARS? Section feature pieces are one of the most important techniques available for keeping a section strong and well represented. MONDO GLISSANDO can even be used as a trombone SOLO piece, by having the non-solo trombones play from the technically simpler euphonium part.Either way, section or solo, there's nothing like an exposed part on an upcoming performance to reinvigorate a musician's interest and encourage that all-important PRACTICE!

    Orbis - Kevin Houben

    The word "orbis" means an orbit or a path, and in this case represents the direction of three wind ensembles as they join together. A triumphant opening to Orbis alludes to the history of these three ensembles, before a heroic theme is played that symbolises their strong future. The middle section is based on a charming melody that represents the three individual ensembles growing together. Orbis is a piece that musicians, as individuals and as a group, can identify with!

    El Toro - Chris M. Bernotas

    Each year in July in the city of Pamplona, Spain, hundreds of people participate in the running of the bulls, which precedes the daily bullfights during the Fiesta de San Fermin. El Toro (The Bull) is an exciting piece with a Spanish flair that has moments of harmonic tension and drama with strong melodies and countermelodies. An exciting way to explore 3/4 time, tension-and-release, and hemiolas, students can imagine the adrenaline of the run and the celebrations of the fiesta as they perform this tune. Ol! (2:20)

    Frederick's Black Devils - Paul Murtha

    During World War II, Winston Churchill initiated the formation of Special Force Commando Units that would prove so effective as to change the course of the war. The First Special Service Force, led by their intrepid Colonel, Robert T. Frederick, was perhaps the most famous of these units. Due to their ferocious nature and blackened faces for night raids, the fearful Germans gave them the nickname The Black Devils. In 2015 they were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest honor the U.S. government can bestow. Frederick's Black Devils is a stirring concert march that pays tribute to this legendary unit.

    School's Cool - Jacob de Haan

    This short, "cool" suite in three movements can be performed with a variety of instruments from a handful of players to a complete concert band. The first movement radiates joy with a powerful 3/4 beat. The second movement is in the style of a pavane, which gives a sense of nostalgia and the final movement forms a cheerful and high-spirited closing with a really funky beat. This wonderful suite has been composed especially for youth musicians and they will all gain great pleasure from performing it.Because of the four-part instrumentation, School's Cool is suitable for smaller strengths, taking into account that it is important to divide parts evenly among the players. Also includes an ad-lib keyboard/piano part to support the ensemble.

    Paper Cut - Alex Shapiro

    Composer Alex Shapiro's piece “Paper Cut” is reminiscent of a movie soundtrack to which the musicians can imagine their own dramatic scene. The piece asks the performers to “play” paper like a percussion instrument – ripping, tearing, tapping and crumpling along with the electronic track even before they pick up their instruments to play along. A very creative and evocative work sure to stir the imagination of players and audience alike. Free interdisciplinary curriculum for the piece is available for download at http://www.BandQuest.org.To perform the piece, you'll need an audio system capable of playing the prerecorded audio tracks from a laptop computer via a small digital audio interface connected to an audio mixer. Download information is provided in the printed piece. (Grade 3)

    The Great Highland Pipes - Mike Hannickel

    Two melodies in the Scottish style meet head-on in this energetic new arrangement. Your students will love the "bagpipe sound" and rhythmic color of the Scottish "snap". This arrangement can also be used with young bands as a lesson in the concept of counterpoint. Each of the two main themes is clearly stated on its own, but remarkable things happen when they are played together. Through skillful selection of themes and contrapuntal composition, Mike Hannickel does a masterful job of melding these contrasting songs into a unified and energetic adventure into the Highlands.Fun to play, and a great style study!
