Brule River Celebration
Brule River Celebration, op. 77
Michigan Upper Peninsula Band Directors Association
2002 – grade 3.5 – 5:00
C. L. Barnhouse Company
Envision a musical sleigh ride through the upper peninsula of Michigan. Playful and energetic, the opening evolves into a plaintive and sensitive segment of the piece that provides great contrast and expressive opportunities. This exceptional piece has several solo passages for alto saxophone, piccolo, flute, oboe, trumpet and clarinet, and is an excellent choice for concert or contest use. Includes a Piano/Keyboard part that adds color to the composition and allows you to feature a budding pianist with your group.
