Powerful unisons open this piece and continue as the trumpets state the heroic melody. A countermelody is then placed over this in the woodwinds. Alternating between marcato and legato sections; this is a good piece for teaching contrasting styles. Students will love the minor key and the power of playing tutti. A great opener for your fall concert. This title is available in SmartMusic.
