Due to post-COVID timing, only a digital recording is currently available.
Perfect for opening or closing a concert for first-year band students, A Woodland Celebration lends a light rhythmic style to a tuneful melody. As soon as young students can play a concert B-flat scale and learn the note concert Ab, this piece is easily playable. 2nd clarinet does not go over the break, and 2nd trumpet and horn have limited ranges as well.
A Woodland Celebration was commissioned by the Smallwood Drive School Band, Amherst, New York, Angela Antersol, Director, with appreciation for the generosity of the Smallwood PTA in celebration and recognition of the “National School of Character Award” presented to the school in 2019.
A Woodland Celebration correlates to Book 1, Level 5 of Sound Innovations for Concert Band.
